Natural Lined Makati Baskets
Keeps Recipe Magazines Organized!
My recipe book shelves were always a mess: magazines and small recipe books constantly falling over and getting lost amongst the larger books. I found these great looking baskets and use one to house these items. It looks organized and pretty on the shelf!
I added felt to the bottom of the basket so I wouldn't scratch my shelves as I pull it off the shelf.
Since then, I've purchased another basket to hold all of the bread/bagel/english muffins that were stacked on the counter.

Nice Basket, Not Quite "It"
These are lovely baskets, nice tight weave, rich color, lining is well made. The reason I gave four stars instead of five, is I found this basket to be too "floppy" or soft for what I needed. I had intended for three of these to line up in the kitchen at the end of an island to hold onions, fruit etc. Unfortunately, these are not sturdy enough to handle heavy items. They would be perfect if they had a metal frame inside them. Without a sturdy frame, these just flop and flub around when you pick them up. I may keep one for my bedroom to hold misc items. Container Store, please make these with metal frames. Thanks.

Classy Organizer-Storage Baskets
Nice classy baskets to store things in a visible area, and still look attractive. Good depth and size. Only negative is if placed on a wood shelve, you need to be careful not to scratch the shelving as there is no protection on the bottom of the baskets for this.

Durable and Functional and Beautiful
This is my bread basket. I needed a smaller bread box and could never find one for my store bought bread. I don't like the plastic commercial wrappers so this lovely basket holds the bread and keeps the wrapper out of site. It fits nicely over my microwave and I'm stunned at the durability. I have a small child who pulls things from the counter and this basket is not exempt from the treatment. It has survived 3 years without a single distress point. Love the colors and the liner comes out to get a nice wash. LOVE IT and I will get more. Keep in mind the smaller baskets are more rigid than the larger ones.
