Attractive StorageChristina B.Adds storage and texture to a room, and allows you to hide your stuff while keeping it accessible. Very strong and sturdy, and attractive in various settings.4
Cube HeavenANTHONY G.This storage cube fits perfectly for the KALLAX shelf.5
Cute but smellyJULIE K.These boxes are a tad messy when putting them together so I’m a little afraid they will be messy when pulled in and out from the shelves. But mostly, they have a strong smell of sea grass. We’ve been putting them out in the sun 3 days in a row and the smell is diminishing but not yet gone. Maybe a few more days.3
Beautiful StorageDEB K.If you’re downsizing and find you need extra storage this basket provides the storage while looking beautiful. I highly recommend it.5
Really nice, really smelly, definitely shedsLIZ K.These baskets are heavy and feel very sturdy. They look really nice in the Kallax cabinet. They definitely have a strong hay barn odor, which hopefully will dissipate over time. They also shed little pieces of fiber when handled, hopefully that will also decrease over time. I still really like them despite the odor and shedding.5
Great BuyMaria B.These storage cubes are worth the buy. Their aesthetically pleasing! They hold a lot and are very sturdy!5
Sturdy and elegantShelley D.Great addition to our mudroom. Makes things look put together and has great depth for storage5
Falls apart someMichele S.The basket is sort of brittle so parts of it stick to the clothing i put into it.2
Pretty but not functionalSTEFANIE S.These look great in a Kallax shelf.... when empty. I have a 4x4 Kallax which I use as a tv stand. Anything in them is visible from the top and through the peephole which defeats the purpose of storage. I have been trying to figure out solutions to covering the hole.3
Love my seagrass basketsPATTISeagrass are both beautiful and sturdy.5
Best baskets ever.YolindaThese baskets are really strong and sturdy. This is the second home I've purchased them for.5
So cute!AntoinetteI purchased 2 baskets to add to the Kallax. They are beautiful and I love how should I not need them right away they fold up to saving room. As a natural product it does have a grass like odor.5
Great kitchen storageSamanthaI purchased these baskets for kitchen storage. They’re really sturdy, which is exactly what I need!5
The BestTrippThe knipsa is the best of the boxed storage-based on ease of set up & durability. I changed the direction of one of my storage units and added 2 more. You can’t tell a difference from the ones new & the others that are 10 yrs old.5
Why notImiIf you need natural material and functionality WHY NOT5
Excellent productDAVIDExcellent product5
Better than I expected.PeggyI couldn't be happier with how these look in our mudroom. Very sturdy and easy to assemble.5
Cute yet functionalTraciI have had my eye on these for a while now and I'm glad I went ahead and got them. Not only do they elevate the look of my shelf, but they also hide my "stuff" in a way that elevates the aesthetic of my room.5


What is sedge (or seagrass)?

Sedge (or seagrass) grows naturally in South-East Asian coastal areas. For our products, we mainly use cultivated sedge from field areas that have previously been flooded by the sea, making them unsuitable for rice cultivation. Sedge grows well in salty soils and even helps cleanse them. After harvest, the plant is left to dry in the sun making it a hardwearing fiber ideal for weaving or braiding products with beautiful color variations, like baskets and mats.
