My husband and I love these baskets! We use them for mail/magazine storage and they are a great size. We've received many compliments on them and they are very sturdy as well. The baskets have a very clean and natural scent to them as well. Overall, very happy with our purchase!
I've had three of these baskets now for 3 months. They are indeed beautiful and quite handy. They had a funny smell at first and I thought over time they would air out. Apparently not, because even after all this time they still literally smell like dirty feet!
