Lets Talk Sizes!
The question I get asked the most is about the size of my baskets.
Now the measurements are always included in the description of every basket in my shop and it looks something like this;
H 8 X W 9 X D 6 INCHES (20 X 22 X15CM)
And I try to include at least one photo that shows the basket that is for sale with an everyday object, usually lego duplo, which is the larger style lego for younger children because I hope that it is a toy that is pretty universal, something that most of us can recognise and are familiar with. But occasionally I forget to add a picture like this and it is on my to do list to put this right!
Saying that..... the measurements, which are approximate as each basket is completely handmade so measurements vary very slightly we are talking a millimetre here and there, are included for each basket. The height of the basket, the width and the depth. But I still get many messages questioning the sizes, especially emails with comments like 'I'm struggling to visualize the size of your baskets', which is no problem, I see them everyday but customers don't, so I thought I would try to show you in better detail with lots of photos the size.
Now..... these measurements relate to my Standard Small Baskets.... the reason I emphasize this is coming very soon are some wider baskets of a similar height, but more about them later in another post! So in this post we are talking about my popular, normal, standard small storage basket, like the ones in the photo above and of course the ones in the photos below! RIGHT lets go...................
So as you can see the height of these baskets is 8 inches which is approx 20 cm.
Below are some photos that show the rough size of the basket at the top when standing. Being made of fabric the baskets can be slightly manipulated. I like to place the baskets over the narrow end of my ironing board and iron on top of the sewn seam sides as this gives the baskets more of a 'boxy' shape.
I haven't over stretched the baskets in these photos and as you can see the sizes vary from 7.5 inches to 8.5in - 19cm to 22cm. Now I hope all these photos help give you an idea, especially a visual idea on the size of my standard small baskets. And if that isn't enough photos, here are a few more showing the baskets pictured with a few toys! Wooden cars, lego CP30 and lego bricks, a wooden stacking toy and various lego duplo animals and figure, and a Norsu Elephant Piggy Bank. Both the baskets shown in the photos can be found here Elephant Basket and here Deer Basket. Hope this helps!
