You might wonder...

Aketekete baskets are made of a strong and flexible material called straw (or elephant grass) which will allow you to use it as much as you want and will cover all your needs. Although, cause it’s a natural material we strongly recommend to avoid humidity, direct sunlight and dust. If you need to clean it, you can use a normal brush. if it should deform a little after many uses, just wet the product to reshape it and make it like new again.
