Nice Sturdy BasketDonaldEast to assemble and very sturdy.5
It’s okayMichelle W.Esthetically speaking, it’s nice looking. Does it do the job (hold stuff), sure. These were a bit annoying to put together and one gave me a splinter while doing it. I bought 3 and one I had to hot glue some of the wrapping back on and one has a big scratch on it. Not deal breakers and I’ll keep bc it’s not worth the gas to return in store (nearest store is almost 2 hours away). I would NOT use these anywhere for children. I was going to use in a family room and instead put in my hubby’s office.3

Great bamboo box!!Jeffrey G.Great bamboo boxes for my Billy shelf unit. Ordered 4 of these boxes. They look great and are extremely sturdy, more so than I had imagined. Very easy to assemble. Great value… very pleased with purchase.5
Cute, but a bit flimsyLaurelI bought this because it was the best choice of the options IKEA had that would fit hanging files. I don't know if that was the intended use, but it works ok. It looks like good quality at first, but in reality it's quite flimsy. I was afraid I'd snap it when I was assembling it, and the first day I took it to work, one of the wooden bamboo parts caught on something and broke off. I expect only downhill from here. It is really cute though, so if you need it more for decor than actual use, go for it.3
So sturdy!Kym K.I purchased these sight unseen from the website, thinking they were more basket than box. They are more box. Very sturdy woven material, hard sided and will stand up to substantial cargo! I am using these to organize a bookshelf. They could be used standalone (pretty on all 4 sides) as well.
What I particularly like is the two bottom pieces that support the box have a felt coating on them so, in my case, when I slide them in and out of the bookshelf it won’t scratch the wood below. Well done, IKEA!5

Show pieceADRIENNEThis is super cute. I didn't like the fact I had to screw it together. It's a super thin wood with sectional part. If you are needing this for aesthetics only- "This is perfect." I need something more functional.3

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA, we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
Forests are critical for life on earth
Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.
100% wood from more sustainable sources
At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030
As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.
We accomplish more by working together
For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.
What is bamboo?
Strong, flexible and one of the world's fastest growing plants – bamboo has many uses that make it an excellent renewable material. It’s a type of grass and usually grows without the need for fertilizers or irrigation. After being harvested, it grows new shoots that are ready for harvesting after 4-6 years. At IKEA, we use bamboo for items like furniture, bathroom decor, baskets and lamps – and we are constantly exploring more areas of use for this versatile material.
