How to get it
The versatile TOLKNING series is made of natural fibres with a warm look. This laundry basket has a bag that you easily lift out when it’s washing time and feet at the bottom to protect it from moisture.
Skilled craftspeople have woven the basket by hand, so each basket is one of a kind.
The inner bag makes it easy to lift out your dirty laundry.
Great to have in the bathroom since the feet at the bottom prevent moisture from the floor being absorbed and damaging the basket.
The material brings a piece of nature into your home and spreads a calm, warm feeling.
Inner bag is included.
Each basket is a unique, handmade work of art with natural variations in colour and shape.

By using a renewable material like willow in this product, we avoid using fossil or finite materials.
We want to have a positive impact on the planet. That is why by 2030, we want all materials in our products to be recycled or renewable, and sourced in responsible ways.
By using recycled polyester in the fabric in this product, we consume less new raw materials and lower our environmental impact while existing materials get new life.
When we developed TOLKNING, we worked with experienced artisans. The result is a decorative and multi-functional series of natural fibre products that carry warmth, a unique expression and lots of character.
Simi Gauba and Kristin Pfannenschmidt are two of our product developers who are based in Vietnam and work a lot with natural fibres.
“When we created TOLKNING, we got help from skilled artisans who know the strengths and weaknesses of the material,” says Simi. “Without them, we wouldn’t be able to offer these products to our customers.”
Form and function hand in hand
When each natural fibre is treated right, it can be transformed into almost anything.
“We can create products that are as beautiful as functional. It’s impossible to manufacture two that look exactly the same since every natural fibre shifts in colour and texture. On the other hand, customers get something unique with lots of character,” says Kristin.
Cooperation between man and nature
Simi says that working with natural fibres can be challenging, but that is also a part of the charm.
“The TOLKNING series reflects a heritage that is worth preserving – man and nature together and skills passed on from generation to generation. I think that’s one of the reasons why these kinds of products are so loved. They have a soul and warmth that many people like – perfect if you want to add genuine materials and natural beauty to your home.”
“My idea with the TOLKNING series was to create sustainable products made from natural fibres that could be used in different ways and in several places throughout the home. I started with my Scandinavian heritage and, in combination with the knowhow and professional skills of craftspeople, the unique products took shape – made by people and for people. I hope they will be useful, bring you joy and make you feel proud about making a conscious choice.”
