For laundry chores and more, you’ll appreciate the large capacity and durable construction of this basket no matter what you use it for. A true favorite, this best-seller was featured in Martha Stewart Living, June 2014, issue.

Ash wood weave is naturally resistant to discoloration from moisture and the hardware is brass coated to help prevent rusting. Sturdy leather handles are riveted to the baskets hoop for added strength. You can count on Peterboro Laundry Baskets — and all Peterboro Baskets — to provide years of excellent service, day in, day out.

Personalize this basket with the option to add a custom engraved hardwood plaque securely attached to the hoop of this basket, opposite the Peterboro Basket brass medallion.

    I have 4 of these baskets and use all for various uses. I travel to Texas each winter and pack my clothing and misc. items n these baskets. They fit nicely in my car and are much easier to carry than a box. When I get to my destination I use two in the trunk of my car to hold groceries and two for laundry. These baskets make my life so much easier!

    I love the simplicity and quality of this basket. When I purchased it I could hardly wait for it to arrive. My only request would be that there would be a plastic protector for it.

    Functional Artwork for your Home

    I love the gray color of this basket & the desgin is like a piece of art, much nicer than a plastic laundry basket to use or look at. The craftsmanship is superior: it is sturdy & well made. At first I thought it might be too small, but after using it I like the size because when it's totally full, it's not too heavy. In fact I like it so much I'm planning to order the round laundry basket as well. And Peterboro's customer service is quickly responsive and works to make it a satisfying experience.

    love but wish it was bigger

    Posted by Carolyn on Jan 8th 2016

    one of the finest quality american made baskets. I bought it for laundry and although there are only two of us I wish is was larger. 20"X 20" would be perfect. I'd buy a second one if it was!

    Sturdy quality basket

    I am very happy overall with my laundry baskets. They are nicely made and will last for years to come. My only complaint is they are smaller than I had expected (or I carry too much laundry at a time). Wish they offered an extra large.

    I gave this basket as a housewarming gift many years ago. I filled it with gifts for the home and the recipients loved it. I have always loved that basket and finally bought myself one. I bought the black and it is lovely. I just wish they still had the liner for it. The basket I purchased for a gift I was able to purchase a plastic and also a fabric liner for it. I have many peterboro baskets and they are all beautiful and excellent quality. You cannot buy a better basket.

    great basket

    I have the large round laundry basket but wanted to add another a little smaller for sorting. This rectangle laundry is perfect! It provides an additional basket for sorting without taking a lot of room in my closet.

    Very versatile basket with sturdy handles that can be used for an assortment of ideas, not just laundry. I am going to use mine for a quilt in progress basket to store all of my pieces while sewing.
