I have owned identical baskets for over 15 years using them to go back and forth to our boats kept on moorings in Newport. You can put groceries, bottles of wine, engine parts whatever in them. They are well constructed and meant to be used. I like just looking at them onboard they are not obnoxious and going home they hold any leftovers, laundry, etc. just as easily. They are perfect for squishing into any area. They do not topple over, just roll a bit.
These are very nice straw bags. Don't be concerned when they arrive all folded, bent and kattywampus. There are instructions to wet and reshape them. It really does work and not hard to do. I hung them in the garage damp, with a weight in the bottom so that the shape would take. I am using them for magazines, yarn, and crafts. The baskets are lovely, but probably expensive in the long run.
Kinda disappointed in these baskets. Although the material is great, I just can't get them to hold their shape, despite several dunkings in water and stuffing with rags until they dry. Thought they would be good in our office where we have groups travel to foreign countries for missions; however, I just don't know what to do with these as they always looks like they are falling over.
