Panier v Corbeille

MAMAN : Bastien, tu sais où est le panier à linge  ?

In this instance is 'corbeille' an acceptable alternative noun for 'panier'?

This question relates to:
French writing exercise "Have you got any dirty clothes?"

Hi Stewart,

Strictly speaking  a 'panier' has a handle and a 'corbeille' doesn't ...

So you will have: une corbeille à pain, à papier, à fruits...

They also are normally quite small.

Hope this helps!
