Nice!MariaSuper for organizing!5
Consistently DependableEricaI had purchased one years ago and it’s still in use and looks new. I purchased 2 more to sit on a metal shelf 24 inches wide. They fit nicely, leaving enough room on either side to reach the handles and pull out. My friend saw them on my shelf and said how much she liked them too.5

Excess availabilityErskineI can put it where I can see it1
Felt containerJamesI love this, because not only is it functional, it reminds me of the “restore basket” produced by MUUTO which retails for $119-$149. With Besta, you get nearly the same look at a fair price. Thanks IKEA5
To keep the little girls shoesIngeborgThis box works perfectly under a bench where my to little girls pick their shoes for the day4
Fits our needPeterGotta bunch of these for my wife's new closet. They fit the depth of the shelves perfectly The felt-like cloth construction is perfect for her use as she expressed concern that the bins not wear/scratch the finish from pulling them out and replacing them. The only real concern is there is definitely an upper limit to the weight limit they can hold, fortunately we are using them to contain items that aren't heavy5
Perfect sizeVerified Buyerlike the width size and height giving easy access5
Perfect storageVerified BuyerLove the storage options that give a more modern look and feel and less of a tired farmhouse trend.5
Perfect for gaming storage!Verified BuyerI bough this to store gaming device cables, controllers and all the gaming “stuffs”. Helps to protect the cabinet console from being banged up by kids that aren’t careful. A low cost way to protect your wall unit console.5
Better than a drawer.JohannaAll travel accessories can be collected, ready to pack. Bringing the box to the open luggage insures nothing will be forgotten. Always ready to go.5
I like it!Verified BuyerGood for my bed with drawers, fits perfectly.5
Exactly perfect!Verified BuyerBought to store my spaniel's toys by the fireplace. It's just the right size, and he can get into it easily. Looks smart. You wouldn't want to stop heavy things in this boxet (box/basket) because the bottom isn't sturdy enough for that. Used as a cabinet organizer, drawer liner, or container that's rarely moved, it's great.5
Very Nice Storage BoxVerified BuyerGreat storage box. A little pricey, but still overall a good solid product.5

Our take on polyester

Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.

Virgin vs recycled polyester

Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.

Some challenges with recycled polyester

Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Only recycled polyester

IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.

Responsible sourcing

At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.


What is polyester?

Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
