These are one of the few basket styles that will arrive pre shaped. It's a firmer weave so instead of folding it to ship, these are nested. We break them up however for your purposes, to offer a variety of sizes to your customers. Both sell with equal vigour. When you order a variety of sizes, you will get a variety of colours, unless otherwise requested. "Natural Palette" refers to baskets with more earth tones, Natural, Natural & Black, Natural & Navy "Traditional Palette" refers to the more common Colour palette of Bolga baskets, those colours chosen by our weavers. Generally These colours are bright, bold and beautiful. While we make every effort to supply our customer with the colour palettes they choose we can not guarantee 100% accuracy with colour selection-but we really, really do try.
