You're welcome But you can say "las toallas del baño", too, There's nothing wrong in this sentence, it's just that in common speech you don't need to specify so much

Canasto o canasta me suena a mi como más grande que un cesto, pero debe ser lo mismo.

También encestar en la cesta o la canasta en un partido de baloncesto.

Como los chilenos somos conocidos porque usamos mucho el diminutivo, entonces usaríamos una canastita o un canastito.

Cuando se habla de Basketball decimos que encestó un balón por ejemplo.

Cesta la usamos pero no mucho...

Pues al revés que nosotros

Sí, encestar un balón en la cesta o en la canasta, ¿no?

También está la canastilla para el bebé, antes de nacer, con la ropita y lo que necesite.

Una cesta de costura también puede llamarse costurero.

Have you ever heard of ..... chiquihüíte.... this word also means basket but I think it is smaller than a regular clothes basket.

Si entiendo bien, un chiquihuite (sin diéresis) es una canasta tejida de palma, sin asa y con tapa. En algunos lugares se le dice así al tortillero (una cesta o caja redonda pequeña para poner las tortillas calientes en la mesa).
