From very intense colouring at the base to just the idea of the marker's rest, each basket represents all intensities of one colour. The baskets are available in two different sizes.

Starting with Canary Yellow up to Dark Bark brown, from Prussian Blue to Special Black, every unique basket in its special colour. produced in Spain material: oak veneer, colour, impregnated available in two sizes (diameter 29,5 cm and 36 cm), each basket is unique in colour, stamped and numbered on the bottom
