I love these baskets! I have them in my bathroom on a lower vanity shelf and they look beautiful along with my "zen" decor. As other reviewers noted, the sizes may differ from what the description reads. Mine are 14" l x 10" w x 7 1/2" h. They are primarily a warm brown like, well, dried grass, with a very subtle pretty green tinge. The only downside is that they require airing because they smell like old cut grass. It's not unpleasant, but with six of them in my bathroom the smell can overwhelm the room. I would put them outside for a day before using. At less than $**** apiece, they're a fantastic value. I'm trying to find other places in the house to use them so I can buy more!
I was worried about the color of these baskets as it appeared my my screen to have somewhat greenish or almost aqua tone. Not to worry. They are a lovely warm natural dried grass kind of brown with just a tiny hint of green here and there. Assembly was absurdly simple. :) The measurements are a problem though. Looking back at the description, I see now that they give two different sets of measurements. :( Still .... instead of 11L x 8W x 7D or even 13.5L x 9.5H x 7W as described, mine measure 13.75L x 9.75W x 7.25H. In my situation, those extra few inches means the difference between 2 of them sitting neatly side by side on my 7" shelves or not.
American Baskets made in CHINA?!? Searched for six weeks to find baskets with these measurements. To my disappointment the measurements are really off. So unless your space for these baskets is flexible don't bother with these baskets. I also found the quality for the price not good.
I like the woven grass baskets and am considering buying another set.. The natural grass color blends with any decor. A couple hold winter hats and gloves; the rest hold mail and papers. I didn't notice the strong grassy odor mentioned by a previous reviewer. Handy that they fold down flat, too. I gave four stars because I wish they were a little taller.
These baskets are absolutely beautiful. They are extremely well made, and the convenience of having them fold down for storage makes them even nicer. The size is wonderful, large enough to hold file folders and anything that you would want out of sight. I use mine in a bookcase. They are so nice, I just ordered another set. They have a real natural look and would fit into almost any decor. I love them!
I bought these to organize the winter hats, gloves and scarves all over the coat closet. The baskets are folded and open up to a nice size and are very sturdy with the wire frames. They are easily folded at the end of the season when summer comes.
When the order arrived I couldn't figure out how they had 6 baskets in the box, until I opened it and saw that they were flat - you simply push the base down between the sides and you are all set - which will make for more convenient storage when not in use. Consistent color - well made, just what I was looking for -
These replaced some 8 year old baskets that hold various foods on my open pantry shelves. I am impressed with their reinforced sturdiness and their elegant appearance. Yes, there is a faint seagrass odor, but I enjoy being taken back to lovely, lazy beach vacations! I am very satisfied with the price and quality of this purchase.
These baskets were exactly what I was looking for. I used them to organize my bathroom closet, and they look neat and clean. The size is perfect for hiding clutter while allowing for all the things that closet holds. Great product for the money-I know because I shopped allover town for baskets.

I needed specific sized baskets for my built in shelves; all the baskets I found were much more expensive. I'm using these to house my toddlers toys and didn't want to spend a ton. They are exactly what I thought I ordered based on the product description.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The baskets are a little more tan than green, as they appear online.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality seems great for the price.
The basket were exactly what I needed for a large shelving unit in my laundry room. They fit perfectly and look wonderful! The only con is the smell. I had to keep the baskets in my garage for about a month before I could bring in the house to air out the "hay" smell, but they are made of grass so I guess that's to be expected. Overall I am very happy with them!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality.

Perfect size for a bookshelf and give you the ability to have a clean look when you have a lot of little things. I used them in my kids downstairs playroom, which also doubled as an office. The kids toys were "hidden" but accessible. Other reviews had said something about a smell. I never smelled anything overbearing. The slight smell of the natural product was little if at all existent. We have been using these baskets for at least 6 months and they have held up VERY well!

I purchased these to go into a small cabinet in the bathroom (which I also purchased on O.co, years ago), and they fit, pertectly. I am very pleased. Color was not a problem for me either. They were slightly different in size, but very slightly, as there is a metal frame upon which they are built. I also like the fact that they fold for shipping/storage.
