Rated 5 out of 5 by MomTeresa Wonderful basket and gorgeous
This basket is so versatile! It holds a good amount and is beautiful. I am presently using it in my living room with toys for my infant grand daughter. But have been know to empty those out to take it to the local farmer's market to get products. Great basket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by IntelliWriter Beautiful and functional
After reading the reviews I decided to order two of these baskets and I am very pleased with my purchase. They are large, sturdy, and really beautiful. I put one out on my screened-in porch that I put small pieces of kindling and matches for use in our outdoor fireplace. I got lucky that the colors were natural, teal, and dark blue which are the colors of my furniture on the porch. The second basket I am putting in the guest bedroom with a blanket and towels for when we have guests come stay with us. I almost wish I ordered another one as the uses for them is endless. If you're looking for a functional basket that looks great, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tinka Great all round basket!
I love this basket so much I had to buy another one! Now I have one in my bedroom, that I use to hold things and for decoration. The other I use to carry just about anything I can fit in it...kids toys, farmer market items, picnic lunch, ect. I have not had any issues with either basket. The working basket even takes beatings from my 5 year old son, when he wants to help carry things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SouthFloridaGal Huge basket
This basket is beautiful, strong and well made.
I especially like the red leather on the handle.
I intend on using it in the guest room to hold either blankets or magazines. Very functional.
Lovely to look at!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mama2LoLa Versatile!
I purchased this over 2 years ago (just getting around to my reviews) and it still looks brand new. Granted, I use it more for decor and not as a true market basket, but it still gets used. It hold my "coffee table" books when I want; it's used as a toy carrier and any other imaginary thing my little boys can think of when they want! (In fact, my youngest actually got it in the basket when we first got it and used it a car, spaceship and other vehicles! And it still held up!) The colors are nice and vibrant (wouldn't have been my choice but that's okay) and it is very sturdy! It's a bit stiff, but with regular use it softens. It's wide, deep and flat bottomed which I LOVE. A lot of baskets tend to narrow at the bottom like a funnel and thus causing less to fit in it. But not this one! The width at the top is the same at the bottom so it holds a lot of stuff. Just ask my boys! LOL! I love that's it's fair trade too and the funds go right back to the community. I've seen these elsewhere (and upon examination looks like the exact same thing) for more than twice as much in the well-known, large organic supermarket retailer (WF). I can imagine that the extra 50%+ in the price goes to their overhead. I'd rather get from Gaiam anyway where I know they work with the people in the communities AND have stellar customer service across the board!
