Basil Beauty Shopper basket- wicker vs rattan review

As I mentioned before, I purhcased the Basil Beauty Shopper in wicker for my Gazelle. It is a great little basket although at the moment I am having a bit of a problem with it rotating on the handlebar stem. I have spoken the the ever-helpful Sean at MySpokes, and he is going to put in a spacer next time I am there.

However, I thought I should mention the rattan-look Basil Beauty Shopper. In my opinion, it is quite inferior to the wicker version as it has a mesh bottom. I assume that there is some sort of rationale for this, but I can't imagine what. 



As you can see from the above pics, anything little would fall straight out.

Contrast this with the wicker shopper. 



The wicker basket has a solid base.

A much better basket!
