6-Compartment Canvas Hanging Sweater Organizer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super convenient and really helps to keep the smaller things organized in your closet. I personally don't use it for sweaters, but I like to put my workout clothes (shorts, sports bras, etc.) there so it's front and center. It's also pretty sturdy as long as you don't overload it and make the shelf too heavy. Bought it with the drawer and it helps to keep things hidden and clean

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too small forty needs This storage bag is of very good quality. It, unlike man others, has very good shelf support. It would have been perfect, but I found that 12” square is just too small to comfortably store the tee shirts, exercise wear, and nightgowns, for which it was purchased. I would have to fold things just too small. I now realize that that the perfect size would be 16” square. It would be great if The Container Store had that option. I think it would be a very good seller. And the search goes on....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot handle any weight The 2 hanging organizers I purchased both split at the seams where the metal hangers attach to the fabric. These organizers cannot handle any sort of weight - and certainly not the weight of sweaters!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Great One Exception Incorrect Dimensions Overall another great find at the container store. But I did find the overall width of the hanging storage organizer is 11" and not the 12" as in the description. Be ready to refold all the clothes to fit if you're replacing an older hanging organizer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Master Closet Revamp I don't have much shelf space in my closet and I didn't want to bag or store my sweaters in a box somewhere else, so I saw these on their website and I liked the pictures they had with them on display to give you an idea. Totally gave me inspiration to redo my closet and I really like it. Makes the sweaters look organized but still accessible. Although, I don't have 24 sweaters, so I can't attest to how much it can fit, it did fit a couple of pull overs, sweats and jackets that I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An organized closet! This organizer was not used for sweaters, but, no matter. I was able to completely organize my storage closet with the help of this item. Because it says that it is for sweaters, does not mean that you cannot use your imagination for what you want to use it for. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for sweaters! Bought this organizer to hold our shoes at our beach place. It’s perfect. Keeps them off the floor and is easier to toss pairs of various sizes in than the smaller traditional shoe bags. We only needed storage for what we bring for the weekend so this was just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I purchased it for my sons dorm room and hung it in his closet. I put 8 big towels, 8 hand towels, 8 washcloths, and an extra sheet set in it with room to spare. He really liked it...was the only thing he complimented that I purchased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shared Closet Helper My girls share a closet and this keeps sweaters from toppling over, shoeboxes off of the floor, and has space for a basket with winter accessories. It’s easy for them to keep looking neat. Great find and very sturdy and well made!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Construction This organizer is the best one I have found in 20 years. The more structured shelving helps to keep it from sagging and my clothes stay folded and organized. With others the sagging shelves would cause one cube to sag into the one below. It would look very unorganized. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item with many uses I love this product as I have used it in many different ways. I have several of them in the house. One of my sons uses it for his shirts. My husband has one in his closet and uses it in the same way. I have one in my closet and I use it for my handbags. I am thinking of getting another for my summer tee shirts. I find it is stronger than some of the other ones on the market. Love it and highly recommend it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great storage unit for sweaters I have owned a few of these...had to buy a new one because my mom took my other one! They are great for folded up sweaters (so they don't get those horrible "Hanger shoulders."), heavy winter scarves, hats, gloves, socks, you name it! I absolutely love this and it actually saves space because you are stacking and not taking up so many hangers. In my future home I will own one in each closet!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Good Compromise This is a good, cheap way to add shelves to your closet. If you don't mind losing 12 inches of hanging space, then just hang it up and you've got shelves that will fit sox, underwear, t-shirts, etc. You have to accept that it's not very sturdy and the individual shelves will sag (they are cardboard covered by cloth). But for $20, it's a great stop-gap measure until you can buy more substantial and robust shelves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Excellent I originally bought this product to act as a substitute dresser (I just moved into the city on a very small budget, and have decent closet space). I installed it immediately after I returned home, and was very pleased. The following day I ran an errand to a similar store, and saw the hanging storage shelf product I had just bought at The Container Store, for $5 less. I couldn't be sure that it was the exact same, but it looked like it could do the same job (and obviously I thought I was getting the best deal: saving $5 and a trip). BUT I WAS WRONG. When I returned home and hung up my new hanging shelf (from this other store) I regretted my purchase. The fabric was thin, and the levels of the shelves were not reinforced. Placing anything on this new hanging shelf made it sag down, and decreased the visibility of what was on that shelf. Once I saw the two shelves hanging side by side, it was clear- I packed back up the newer (inadequate) shelf that I had saved $5 on, and returned it to the store. I then went Back to The Container Store and purchased the original hanging shelf, (telling the cashier all about it). No regrets since. My closet looks great, and the quality of these hanging shelves are excellent. Truly one of the best investments I've made in organization (and they were only $20 each!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what I was looking for! Instead of having an expensive closet organizer 'build' a sweater cabinet, I tried this hanging sweater bag. And I am very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good price for the quality I was previously storing my sweaters on a bulky wire shelf, I purchased the sweater bag to not only create more room, but add sophistication to my closet. For the price I expected this item to be floppier but the quality seems to be working for its purpose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does what it's suppposed to do I bought two of these so I could store sweaters and similar items in a space where I had plenty of closet rods but no shelves. Would have gone with actual shelves if I had found something with the right dimensions and at the right price, but these are a good alternative. Nothing fancy but does the trick. Haven't had any problems with bowing; that may depend on what kind of closet rod you put this product on (I have a traditional closet rod)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reasonable Price and Useful This is a nice size canvas hanging sweater bag with reasonable price. One drawback is I want it to be more sturdy so I can put more heavier clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what it's supposed to do If I had the cash flow to invest in another Elfa closet drawer dresser, I would've done that. If you put too much weight on these shevles (notice how there's only a few sweaters here and there in the photos) the top will bow. It drives me insane. I have the matching hanging shoe bag and it's great. I bought the shoe bag first, and wanted things to match so I didn't go for the hanging bags with hooks on top instead of velcro. Other than that, it's a great product at a great price. Side note, It would be awesome if there were matching bins for this to put in the cubbies. There's options out there, but the colors and measurements don't match exactly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for making use of kids closets I didn't want to spend a fortune on a custom closet for my kids and their rooms just aren't big enough for larger dressers. So this solution is turning out to be terrific for their extra clothes. Put all their winter stuff in these and kept summer stuff in dressers we had. While the cubbies aren't super big (fits two folded sweatshirts or maybe three pairs of folded jeans), it does make use of the closet space--as we don't hang the kids clothes-and their dressers are no longer overflowing.

What are the square panels made out of? The shelves have a strong smell and I want to wash them but if the panels are cardboard it will ruin them.

Asked by: Anonymous
The reinforcement material is cardboard. We do not recommend putting in washer. You should 1) vacuum the dust off the product (2) Spot clean with a damp cloth. Thank you for your question. We hope this helps!

I ordered three 6-Compartment Hanging Sweater Organizers and one Hanging Shoe Organizers in grey. I'm very pleased with them, except for the bad odor. They smell really terrible. Do you have any advice for eliminating the odor?

The shipping smell should dissipate after airing out from the packaging. Please contact our customer solutions department if you have any further questions or issues!

Why does this product contain phthalates?

We purchased a few of the 3-cube hanging organizers and drawers in store. There weren't any of the 6-compartment hanging organizers in store. When I went to order this product through your website, I received the California warning about phthlates. This was pretty surprising considering it appears to be a linen (and not plastic) product. Do you have any additional information? Was this just an error through the website, or does this product actually contain phthalates?
Asked by: RachelPDX
Our 6-Compartment Hanging Sweater Organizer is made from a blend of linen-like fabric and polyester (PET), a plastic covered in California by Proposition 65.
