Wicker basket

3 Apr 2023

Do you know why we have kept wicker basket for 240 years? Our predecessors had the good idea to choose wicker and rattan which are the two materials that make up a hot air balloon basket. With of course leather to ensure decoration and safety. But the most interesting is the main virtue, that of being a real shock absorber. If we land a little abruptly, it hugs the shock. The cradle always returns to its original shape. We have tried different materials to replace it but none of them has been convincing.
