Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dimensions are not accurate for my purpose bought the small basket 13.5x9x6 inch baskets for 8"x11" printer paper unfortunately the inside width is only 7.5" while the outside width is indeed 9 inches. The reeds are very thick and shrink the inside down by a good .75" on each side. tried stretching the width but the Hyacinth bounces right back to original form.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Baskets By Far I needed something to organize my pantry and these baskets were the answer! They are super sturdy and the handles make them highly functional. I bought 8 medium bins to store similar items together. The handles allow my family to easily access the stored items and I really like that I can hang a label to identify the contents. Really like them and would highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE Organization is my latest obsession! I love using these baskets (I use medium and large) to help organize my house as well as my parents' house. I use these to help hold everything, from towels, house hold cleaners to pet supplies. I bought almost 50 of them already! Of course, they are easy on the eyes too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute but messy! We bought these to store kids toys in our living room. They're cute and the handles are easy for little hands, but my word, do they make a mess! They don't hold up well over time and leave little bits everywhere that need to be vacuumed up constantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect size for storing tube hangers I wanted something nicer than a hanger stand to hold the clothes hangers that we use to hang dry our clothes. It's perfect for our bathroom where we keep our drying stand. As you can see, clothespins fit nicely on either side of the hangers held snugly in place inside the basket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful organizers These bins are really sturdy and beautiful, with a soft appearance and smooth edges. Cuts in the water hyacinth face the interior for a uniform look outside, and the cut edges don't seem likely to snag anything. I love the right angles, which make these practical for storage because there's no wasted space like you find in more irregular woven bins. I would recommend buying in person. At the store, I could choose bins with similar coloring and fewer blemishes — although I didn't find many flaws in any of them, another sign of quality. The sizes also match extremely well with the Iron Folding Collection. The medium is the perfect depth, and two smalls fit side by side on the 4-shelf folding bookcase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution I needed just the right size basket to act as a drawer on a shelving unit I have. I searched everywhere until I accidentally found it on The Container Store website. I was thrilled, and I put the bins on the shelves right away. I live in a condo and have to use all of the space I can. The bins solved one problem for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy but beautiful I purchased these for storage organization of our walk in closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Storage Containers! I am using these containers on custom made dark green storage racks in the breeze way entrance to our home. Now I have a neat looking storage area for everything we need as we rush out the door. Dog leases and supplies; flip flops, gloves, hats and scarves in the winter, dog towels, flashlights and small garden tools and bins for root vegies. I love them, and they are so beautiful and smell so good - natural materials.

Community Q&A

What labels work with these bins?

I love the look of these bins for my linen closet. Since they are opaque, I would like to be able to label them. Any ideas for cute and functional labels so I can tell what's inside?
Asked by: poppybee
I purchased the "bin clip labels" from the container store. They have a black chalkboard look and you can use the liquid chalk to write on them. They look like they were made for these bins.

Are these baskets treated or finished with anything (varnish, etc) or are they raw/unfinished material?

Will these bins snag on fabrics (clothing, for example)?

Asked by: DeniseD
I use them for towel storage and have no problems, The material is actually soft and quite silky to the toch. But I don't think I would store very delicate fabrics in these. It's natural material after all...
Answered by: Melu

Are these bins stackable?

Asked by: Hawkrph
No, not really. They are all the same size and so stacking them would be tedious and unstable.
Answered by: Melu
Date published: 2015-05-02

How do I clean them?

Do they need to be wet, a few times a year, in order for them to not dry out? Can they be sprayed with water to clean or just wiped with damp cloth?
Asked by: livtoski
I have had these for several years and there seems to be no need to wet them down. I guess it can't hurt but does not seem to be necessary.

I have 10 of the Water Hyacinth Bins in several sizes and love them. However, I stored my winter tops, sweaters and other items of clothing in them for several months and when I removed the clothing from the bins there was an odor to my clothes. Needless to say, I had to rewash everything. I have tried putting the bins outside in the sun but still can smell a faint odor and am hesitant to store clothes in them. My closet is designed to use these bins ~ does anyone know what I can do to remove the odor?
Asked by: Like2Shop
While all natural materials such as water hyacinth have some scent naturally, exposure to sunlight and fresh air should allow it to dissipate. If you are particularly sensitive to the remaining scent, contact us at 1-888-CONTAIN (266-8246) to discuss alternate solutions.

I've been (unsuccessfully) looking for baskets this size but more colorful. Does anyone know if this basket is paintable?

Asked by: Oliverdaisy
Because these baskets are made of a porus leaf product, most paints would not adhere properly, permanently or consistently to these natural fibers. Therefore, we would not recommend painting them.

is there a size that would fit cds or dvds well?

Our Small Water Hyacinth Bin (10054556) is ideal for storing DVDs and our X-Small Water Hyacinth Bin (10060505) is suitable for CDs.
