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 well-made; consistent quality I bought three of these to sit atop three of the Bigso Marten Cubes for a shallow home office cabinet that has no shelves. The wire frame feels strong and sturdy, which will be needed as they will frequently be accessed. They hold my crazy large collection of laptop / messenger bags. p.s. Cats who have grown up with sisal scratchers in the house think that's what they are -- recommend not letting them near them!

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 Perfect Exactly what I was looking for. Perfect size to put on kitchen counter to put random things in. We throw our keys, sunglasses, lotion, etc. there when we get home. We have a couple of the other hyacinth bins that we use for blu-rays so we love that it matches.

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.

Community Q&A


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.
