Stupidly impossible storage box hunt can anyone help please?

I have a unit that I would like to put some storage boxes onto and despite looking everywhere including 2 hours trawling around Ikea today I cannot find any boxes which will fit. Well that's a lie I found 1 wooden box which could work but I'm worried that would scratch the unit when being removed.

The dimensions I'm working with are:

No more than 25cm high
Up to 45cm long

The width of the space on the unit for the boxes is 74cms

I don't mind if they are narrow and I have to have several to fill the space but it seems to be the combination of the height and length that is posing a problem.

Ideally I would like them to be grey but I'm beginning to wonder if any such boxes exist. Does anyone have any amazing suggestions of what might work or where else I could try looking.

I've emailed before (rotho) and asked which products would fit the dimensions. They were very helpful!

Argos have quite a few within that size- just type in canvas boxes

If you are not bothered how they look I'd have thought The Plastic Box Shop would sort you out.

Thank you so much for all your help!

Lwmommy that one looked great and just underneath it was a set of 3:

MANGATA 18" Thickened Storage Boxes, Extra Large Fabric Baskets, 3 Pack (Grey, Jumbo)

Which are pretty much the perfect size at (45L*35W*24H)!

They hopefully should fit perfectly on the unit. I really should have known better and asked here first before wasting so much of my day trugging around in the rain.
