Date Leaf Rectangular Basket
Lovely and tasteful laundry basket
I bought my first basket about 8 months ago, and since it was holding up well, i bought my second one last week. This basket looks great, especially if you prefer something natural or non-plastic. The size is perfect, fits a complete large load, and sits right under our front loading dryer door to easily remove clothes from the dryer straight to the basket. If you are looking for a laundry basket to last 30 years, this probably not it.

Hoped for longer life
I love the size and feel of this basket. However, I purchased it for its durability and I don't feel that it has held up to my expectation. The top layer started unraveling after only a few months of use. It's now flaking off pieces less than one year of use. (I don't do a ton of laundry by most standards. Only 2-3 loads twice a month.) If you can catch a sale and don't mind replacing it periodically, it's a great basket. If you're looking for something longer term or more durable, I wouldn't suggest this option.

Beautiful Laundry Basket
This beautiful basket makes laundry chores much more enjoyable! I bought several for wedding gifts and all recipients have loved theirs and remarked that they LOVED getting rid of their plastic laundry baskets. My only suggested improvement: CHANGE THE TYPE OF PRICE TAG ATTACHMENT CORD !!!!! Fortunately, (on the basket that I purchased for myself) I learned after i removed this horrible, knotted plastic cord that it acts as a razor on the date leaves. I did not want to send mine back, so I glued and repaired the cuts. On the subsequent baskets that I ordered for wedding gifts, I carefully removed the cords myself before giving to the recipients. ( I was sure they would "pull" them just as I had done and rip the date leaves.) PLEASE consider changing the cording that attaches the price tag to this basket!

Great Large basket
It was great to find a large basket for blankets, the kids large blocks, and also find it on sale! Would definitely recommend it! I had been looking for a large enough basket for the children's large block that was reasonably priced. This did the trick! I have only had it for a week, so I don't know how durable it is yet.

great size and price
I've looked for this particular size basket for a couple of months and none "fit the bill". Not only is this basket large enough, it is also attractive and well made. To top it off I purchased it on sale...nice!

Great shoe basket
We bought three of these baskets. I use one for my purse & bag that I have my iPad in. One for my daughter's boots & one for my shoes. They work wonderfully - they are large, hold a lot & do not scratch anything because they are nice & soft. Perfect fit for us! :)

roomnick room for Show
We live at the shore during the summer and have 3 grown children and a son-in-law visit every weekend. They take their shoes off when they come in and by Saturday morning, theree are at least 12 pairs of shoes in our foyer. We bought this basket to put all the shoes in and in does the trick perfectly.
Made well, light in color, and light weight, it's an attractive addition on our natural color floor.

Beautiful but not as a laundry basket
This is really an attractive basket and large enough to hold extra towels in a bathroom. Unfortunately, it's not going to work as a laundry basket. I've used mine three times to take clothes out to the clothes line and back in after they're dry. Some of the fibers are already broken around the edge. I suspect that before too long it may no longer be useful.
I love the basket and if I could think of another use for it, I would keep it. However, I plan to return it. I rated it at 4 stars and would recommend it, just not as a laundry basket.

not very strong
I bought this and returned it because it was not very strong. Within 1 week the material started coming out a little near the handle. I could tell this basket was not going to last long enough and returned it while I still could.

Wicker Baskets the BEST
I purchased about 12 of these baskets for a project. When they arrived they were made well and I just love them.

I just received my baskets the other day after searching for the 'perfect' laundry baskets for months! These are large and attractive baskets. They claimed to be smooth enough for delicates and so far I'm snag free.
My only complaint was that the two baskets that arrived were different from one another-one was about three inches deeper than the other and the colours were quite different. I can hardly complain, as the customer service at the Container Store was amazing and I have two hopefully matching baskets on the way.

Huge, Sturdy Baskets!
We are designing a new dream laundry room with open cabinetry slots to fit 4 laundry baskets. I wanted matching baskets that were pretty enough to have out on an open shelf, sturdy and large enough to fit an entire load of laundry sorted by color. These baskets totally fit the bill! I originally had considered the Rectangular Typha Laundry Basket or the Woven Nylon Laundry Basket, but after making a drive out to the Container store I realized I was going to have to save up for these because in person I could see they're worth every extra penny--I wasn't able to find anything at other stores that even came close by comparison. After searching for a coupon, I had them shipped to my local store for free and justified my purchase with the idea that they look like they will last me until I die--I don't us ever having to replace these beauties. Buy with confidence! :)
