The basket is very nicely made, and it looks quite smart. The dimensions are just right for my requirements. It is lined, but do be aware that this is not removable, if that is what you want.
The wood frame makes it quite sturdy compared with all of the wicker and woven laundry baskets I have seen in the shops. Not only were some of those quite rickety, it also appeared they would only last a year or two before they started falling to pieces. This one looks as though it should last longer.
One minor niggle: the tapes that hold the lid open are just a fraction too short, so that the lid won't stand up on its own, it always falls closed again. Here's hoping they might stretch a little bit in time.
