A classic Rattan Pet Basket by Charley Chau, dressed with a luxury mattress and co-ordinating bed bumpers to create a super-cosy pet bed.
Sometimes the classics are the best and Charley Chau's Dressed Rattan Pet Basket delivers comfort in spades and style in abundance.
Charley Chau rattan baskets are hand-woven to the highest standards using beautiful greywash rattan canes in a neutral, olive-grey tones. Strong and flexible, rattan is durable and long lasting because it can cope with a fair bit of “kicking-around”. Charley Chau Rattan Pet Baskets should not be confused with cheaper wicker baskets that are traditionally woven with willow canes - usually more brittle and likely to snap and split than rattan.
This Charley Chau Dressed Rattan Pet Basket is available "basket only" or as a set with the basket dressed with Charley Chau's luxurious mattress and co-ordinating bed bumpers in four pretty cotton prints.
The luxury mattress is deep-filled with insulating hollowfibre and constructed with internal wall panels to stop the fibre filling from moving around so that your cat or dog won't ever have to put up with unwelcome lumps and bumps - even after washing in your machine! The bed bumpers are soft and squidgy but supportive and resilient - perfect for nestling into for a nice long snooze!
Charley Chau Rattan Pet Baskets are a dream to keep clean - wipe with a damp cloth or take it into the garden and spray down with a hose pipe!
The luxury mattress has a removable cover and both the cover and mattress inner are machine washable. The bed bumpers have a fixed cover and they simply fold up in one piece to go straight into the machine - simple!
As you would expect from Charley Chau, the bed is designed to be as practical as it is gorgeous.
The rattan basket is hand-woven with rattan canes. Charley Chau Luxury Mattresses have a 100% cotton outer cover and the mattress insert has a 60/40% polycotton case and is filled with insulating polyester hollowfibre (commonly found in human anti-allergy pillows). The co-ordinating Bed Bumpers have a 100% cotton outer cover and are padded with a soft but reislient polyester wadding.
Waterproof Bed Liners are also available to protect the mattress inner on all Charley Chau beds - they simply slip over the mattress inner and help to keep the mattres scleaner for longer which means you won't need to wash it as often! We particualrly reocmmend the Waterproof Bed Liners for the Large size bed as the large mattress should be washed in a large capacity machine due to its size.. Waterproof Bed Liners are a 100% PU backed nylon.
The matress cover, mattress inner, bed bumpers and waterproof liners are all machine washable. Gorgeous and practical!
Please note that the blankets shown in the photos are not included. Charley Chau Faux-Fur Blankets and Double Fleece Blankets are available to order separately on this site.
The dimensions provided are approximate and there may be slight variance as this basket is hand-woven using rattan canes. Approximate dimensions (internall // external) cm measured at widest points:
Small - 74x57x22cm // 65x49x20cm

Choosing the right size basket: measure your dog when he/she is standing still from the tip of his/her nose to the base of his/her tail to give you a minimum length, and then from the top of the skull straight down to the floor to give you the minimum depth of basket required. You should also allow a little extra space (we recommend 25% extra) so that your dog does not end up squashed against the sides of the bed! And if your dog is borderline between two sizes choose the larger size!
