One of Steele Canvas Basket Corp.'s earliest catalog, circa 1920s
Staunch. That's a word you don't hear very much anymore. But there it is on the inside cover of the 1920s Steele Canvas Basket Catalog: Staunch. Dependable. Durable.
Staunch means two things:
- Loyal and committed of attitude, and
- of strong and firm construction.
Founded in 1921 and still manufacturing in the USA today, Steele Canvas Basket Corp. embodies the first definition, its products the second. Steele Supply Co., as it was originally known, got its start making special canvas carriers for New England's robust coal and textile trades. Despite stiff competition, Steele's quality and craftsmanship stood above the rest.
Over the years, Steele has worked with industries of all sorts, from tobacconists and shoemakers to the designers of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons. We are proud to partner with them to provide classic offerings in updated, Rejuvenation-exclusive color-and-material combinations.
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
STEELE is hand-stenciled on every product it makes.
In the 1940s, the elevated basket was extremely popular, and is still a bestseller.
Beyond the classic natural-canvas and vinyl combination, we offer Rejuvenation-exclusive combos.
