Designer Comment :
A bucket-shaped basket that can be used for a variety of different purposes. Place a rug in it, or store children's toys―its use depends on your imagination. When expanded, it returns to being a single piece of cloth. But don't worry; it is very easy to assemble.The basket is sure to be delighted if its silly face brings you the slightest bit of joy. Who knows, it may even brighten your day!
