To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love how these look in my wardrobe makeover however I am disappointed to find one with an obvious flaw which is even marked by tape by the manufacturer so they knew about it! and now after purchasing an entire range to redo my walk in robe they do not have more of the required size for me to return the faulty one and purchase another. This is incredibly disappointing as I purchased 15 of these and they certainly add up to a significant purchase.
Im always looking for storage solutions that are affordable and the value I get from these are awesome! Actually just came back to purchase another set and saw that there were alot of concerns about them coming folded so I figured Id leave my review to help some people out. They do come folded which I see as a plus as they come in a smaller box than the would f they were fully expanded. This does leave creases on them which I quickly got out with the iron on a medium low setting and a little bit of steam. I also dressed them up a little with my Cricut as these are on the top shelf of my pantry and it help me remember whats in them! Dont hesitate to get these because they are AWESOME!
Very happy w the purchase for my purpose. To bundle a gift for new entrepreneur. Would. Say this container would be great to carry more than 5 lbs on a regular basis. It’s material and handles r very durable, but bottom would sag. I just placed a sturdy paper pad in the bottom for the purpose of this gift. It presents very well and is a great price for the item. Especially for decorative purposes or to store light items or even heavy if they don’t need maneuvered daily. And the recipients cat loves it. Thanks it was his gift
My dog likes to social distance her many toys all over my apartment, and a cardboard box was functional but not attractive. This is both useful and attractive. I like that it does NOT have graphics on it, since my dog can't read and I know what the basket is for, and if I needed it for something else, I can use it for something else.
After I put my storage bins into use today, I checked Amazon to determine how these bins got ten rave reviews and only one negative. After looking over these reviews, I feel certain I understand why. In essence, it comes down to a problem I’ve encountered before when Amazon lumps reviews for a variety of items under one heading. Let me explain why.
Like the other two-star reviewer, I found the sides do not maintain their shape on their own. If you look at my attached photo, you will see a dent in the bin on the far left. That’s because it’s not fully loaded. The bin on the far right has great shape, but then it’s filled with five puzzles that fit snuggly. So why did only two of us cite this as a problem? Nine reviewers were evaluating bins that were significantly shorter than the bins the other two-star reviewer and I bought. There is one other person who bought the same height that I did, and she said they held their shape after she crammed a bunch of stuff in them. And she’s right: even a pillow case will hold its shape if you insert a pillow that fills every bit of space. Bottom line: The short bins are more likely to hold their shapes without having to be stuffed because there is less fabric to have to support vertically. The taller bins need insertable stays at the four corners.
Since I have these bins fairly full, this is only a one-star-loss issue for me. I’ve deducted the other two stars for the lack of uniformity in fabric pattern for my lattice-styled bins This isn’t an issue for seven of the options: four, in fact, are solid colored. However, two have horizontal stripes for which the fabric has to be cut exactly the same to create uniformity. If you look at my photo, you will see that all three of my bins are different; not only are the stripes at varying levels, but the stripes aren’t all even straight on the bin on the far right.
Now, I believe it is reasonable to assume the stripes will be uniform and level, given that the description says the bins can be attractively displayed together. Without uniformity, the bins just look haphazard and reflect a lack of concern or attention to detail. Still, in this case it is beyond a reasonable assumption; we are led to expect the bins to be identical, given the pictures. All seven pictures of the lattice style show the stripes in the same exact position on all the bins
Overall, let me say that the bins are made of good fabric with fine support for the top and bottom rims. Nonetheless, the statement that the bin “keeps its shape even when empty” is misleading, at least regarding the tall bins. And those multiple shots of the lattice style, they create an expectation for quality that isn’t necessarily what you will get. Had the shots been of the bins I actually received, I would have never bought them.
Update November 2020: I decided I wanted another one of these to hold pillows. I originally got one to hold blanket throws and loved it so much that I decided another one would be great, right alongside the other, holding extra pillows. But unfortunately, the one I ordered was a little different hue than my original purchase. They looked wrong next to each other - one being a little more purple than the other. So, I tried again and ordered an additional one hoping that two of them would match. Nope. They were all a little different. So I sent back the two new ones and just stuck with my original purchase and gave up on that idea. See original review below:
Original review: Initially, I thought this container seemed too small for blankets. But it's actually the perfect size to hold 3 throw blankets that I got from Costco. It completely contains the blankets and looks attractive. There are some diagonal fold marks from being folded during shipment (visible in the photos) I'm not sure if they will come out by themselves over time. I suppose I might need to pull out the old iron! Be aware that the undertone of this gray color is kind of purple. That works fine for me although I do wish the tone was a tad warmer.
Update June 2020: I ordered another exact one of these, but the color is different. It is a little warmer and less purple. I like it better than the first. Luckily, I'm using them in two separate rooms, so the difference in color is not important.
** Edit to add the seller reached out to mention they have changed suppliers, and apologized for the quality - I appreciate the proactive response from the seller. (11/26) These are not well made at all. I bought 4 for my linen closet - they aren't uniform in shape or height so by no means does it help to make the closet look organized. There are huge creases on the ends from them being folded in on themselves - no idea how to make it smooth like the picture. Super flimsy. Finally - they stink. There is no way I will put fresh sheets and towels in them! Returning :(
These are exactly what I was looking for for my Tangkula coffee table! They fit perfectly, hold a lot, and look very nice. The only downside is they don’t have a hard bottom but just don’t put heavy things in them then!
