These are the baskets I purchased for my Sauder cabinet review I did earlier today. I went to quite a few places before finding what I was looking for and as I headed out to Pier 1 Imports I was hoping they would have the selection in the store that I had found on their website.
I needed 3 baskets to fit into my lower cabinet shelves and they could not be larger than 12" wide. I did not want wicker baskets afraid they would eventually damage the wood finish when pulling them in and out. I found the perfect solution in these large brown polka dot baskets.
**Perfect size: 11-3/4 x 11-3/4 x 7-3/4" high. They slid right into each cubby hole as if they were made for them! I only found the large size in the store but the website does say these come in a smaller size but give no measurements.
**Construction: Made of a woven paper-mache, these large baskets are light but very sturdy. The baskets are covered with a brown material and lined with a brown and white polka dot material design on the inside and over the top side of the basket as an accent. The material will not scratch the cabinet, so again, it was a perfect choice. There is a large rope handle protected by grommets on two sides which makes easy work of carrying them around.
**Color: I really had not chosen any specific color as I was mainly concerned about size but I really like the brown color as it won't show dirt and the addition of the polka dots around the edges and inside makes it a really fun looking basket.
**Uses: These baskets could be used to hold a variety of items but for me it was to organize my craft projects that I am currently working on. I can also see them next to a couch to hold magazines, in a bathroom to hold towels or in a breezeway to hold gloves or hats.
**Cleaning: It is recommended that these baskets only be used indoors and cleaned with a dry cloth.
If you are looking for any type of basket, please check out www.pier1.com or the nearest store near you. I found they had the greatest selection in sizes and material than any other store I visited.
