Peterboro Heavy Duty Large Laundry Basket

Peterboro Laundry Baskets are known for their durability and utility, and the Peterboro Heavy Duty Large Laundry offers those legendary qualities and more. Woven from white ash wood that naturally resists discoloration from moisture, you can fill the large capacity drum basket with a hefty load of laundry. Strong braided leather handles, attached with brass rivets, and a solid wood bottom make this a real workhorse basket.


  • Rugged enough to carry and store firewood/logs
  • A great catchall for stuffed animals and small toys
  • In the back of the car to keep sports equipment from rolling around
  • Perfect for holding paper and cardboard items for recycling

This basket is available in our Cherry, Honey and Driftwood Gray finishes, as well as Natural White Ash. It comes with the Peterboro Basket brass medallion and limited lifetime warranty. The basket measures approx.: 18"Diameter x 14"H.

Peterboro Basket Company is the only manufacturer of this “one-of-a-kind” basket design. The basket is handcrafted in the USA from hardwood Appalachian Ash and 100% American-made materials. All of the hardware has been brass coated to help prevent rusting.

    It IS heavy duty! It feels good to be using a natural product not a plastic throw away.. I’almost’ look forward to doing the laundry!

    Heavy Duty Laundry basket

    Wow, this basket is so beautiful and made so well! The quality is evident in all the details . Love the cherry color! This is my first purchase from Peterboro. Now that I have seen the workmanship, I’m sure that I will look at other baskets. This particular one is a gift for our daughter. I originally thought that she would use it for laundry but I have a feeling she’ll put it in her family room to hold blankets and throws. She is going to love it and will be so surprised! I’m saving it for Christmas.

    I bought two of these, one for me and one for my daughter. I thought I was gonna use it as a laundry basket, but it has turned into a toy basket for my grandchildren. Wonderful product and great investment. Holds a lot of toys. Great product and awesome craftsmanship.

    Heavy duty laundry basket

    I purchaed a peterboro laundry basket over 15 yrs ago but the hadles kept wearing out. The heavy duty handles seem extra strong too last a long time. No question on the basket construction the best!

    Functional Art

    Posted by Kimberly on Jul 27th 2016

    I really like this basket. It is well made & besides being functional, is a work of art. It sits in the corner or my dining room when not in use and does not look like a laundry basket, more like a nice decorating touch. I purchased the gray color and with the contrasting tan leather handles is a very nice looking item. It holds lots of laundry, too.
