Made of heavy off white cotton canvas. The buckets are about 9" in diameter, approximately 11" tall, and hold about 3 gallons. A piece of wood is sewn into the canvas handle to make carrying more comfortable. These buckets are intended for transporting--not storing--water and as such they may leak slowly. Water may bead up on the outside. As the fabric becomes saturated and swollen the leaking should slow. They fold up nicely to about 1-1/2" thick for storage. Imported.
