Natural products such as grass are meant for hardy use and products such as baskets, have for ever been used in daily lives by the poor and the rich. These can be exposed to moisture, water and sun but must always be dried well and then keep free of dust and grime. The colours will always transform or fade when exposed to the elects and that is a great part of the charm of natural products
