Hurfa’s tips: Add simple style to your home with this timeless and functional item. Juana Basket with lid is ideal for storage of skincare and beauty products in the bathroom; styled on a shelf in the living room to keep those essential everyday items tidy; or on a console in the entryway, it will work as a catchall for keys or other clutter.
There's just something soothing about the neutral hue of the chaguar basket and the lovely shape of the lids on these baskets adds to their charm.
- Although chaguar is a very resistant and durable vegetable fiber it should be handled with care. It does not require any particular maintenance but we highly recommend not to wet your basket since moisture could cause color fading as well as sun exposure, so be sure to keep it clear of harsh rays.
- To clean it, we suggest you shake it to remove dirt or dust particles.
