Grommets failed after several months of use
I bought 2 of these, originally so that my son could keep his smaller school items neatly in one place in one corner. Then I decided to use them to carry them back and forth to assisted living take to items to and from my loved one's room and sometimes to ballet costume fittings with ballet costumes and a few sewing supplies. I did not ever overload these with heavy items. Nevertheless, the rope handles failed when the some of the grommets came out; this happened to both bins on separate occasions. However, the Container Store has some other bins that fold up and have stood the test of use and time with the same type of use, the rhombus storage totes, which I do recommend and to which I would give 5 stars.
I do agree with those who say that the sides do not stay up unless they are full.

Good Value, Good Design for Everyday Storage
Economical but stylish option for storage on shelves. Well-made, holds up to daily use by our family. Adds a warm textile element to utilitarian shelving. Created artsy labels and attached with a few had sewn stitches with contrasting thread.

Kind of wish the sides stood up and were more rigid but overall seems to be a sturdy bag.

I love it. Have little dumbbells stored. Perfect! Perfect size and very sturdy.
