I have a feeling "wicker basket" might be used with more frequency in DWU fiction.
Talk about it here.
A laundry basket, also called a wicker basket, was a container used for clothing. Mr Sin was transported to the home of George Litefoot inside a basket from Limehouse Laundry. He hid there until men of the Tong of the Black Scorpion arrived and helped steal the time cabinet. (TV: The Talons of Weng-Chiang)
