Steele Canvas Basket, established in 1921, is the most respected manufacturer of canvas and polyethylene baskets, trucks, hampers, buggies, bins and canvas bags in the industry.
The wonderful folk over at the Steele Canvas Basket Company seem to be the end all when it comes to functional, long lasting and oh-so-pretty baskets for laundry, storage and more. They've been in business since 1921 and for good reason — the superior quality of their products is only rivaled by their amazing customer service. Based out of Massachusetts, they strive to deliver the best product possible. Eight of our favorites are listed below!
Most of the products listed below are also available in the option of Steeletex (plastic), but we still prefer the original canvas for home use. They will be coveted by your friends and each can have multiple uses throughout your home! You can see their full list of products over at Steele Canvas.

• Round Carry Basket: starting at $52, this all purpose basket serves the same purpose as the one above, just in a different shape!
• Steele Tote Bag: this bag starts at $30 and is a great way to haul home Farmer's Market Finds, store tools and more. It's the one "green" bag that won't ever need to be replaced.
Bottom Row, Left To Right
• Removable Style Truck: For those with larger families and therefor larger amounts of laundry, this could be a great addition to your home. Simply roll the "laundry bus" down the hallway and let kids throw in their dirty clothes. Starting at $152.
