Date Leaf Hamper
the handle broke after one day . . .
I like this laundry basket. It is a huge upgrade in size, style, and quality of my previous one. It looks great in my bedroom and holds as much laundry as I can accumulate in a week for me, my son, our linens, and guest linens.
All that said, I was disappointed that the lid handle broke off the day after I bought it! You don't need that handle to remove the lid, so I can live without it, but still, one day?!

nice but lid difficult
I like the basket, and will keep it vs paying a fortune to ship/return it. However, I do not like the handle on the lid. It is attached so tightly to the lid itself that you can only wedge a finger underneath with great difficulty. Since I"m using it as a laundry basket and take the lid off frequently, I now have to grab it by the lid's edge, which is also quite awkward. I'm afraid to try taking off the handle, that trying to reattach it would end up ruining something. All they needed to do was use slightly longer "grass" to attach it so there was space underneath. Bummer!

I bought this hamper after having a rectangular hamper with a lid attached to a chain. After an incident with my cat getting stuck in it because it slammed shut, I decided the chained lid simply will not do anymore. I was leery of the size of the basket, but it really does hold a surprising amount of clothing, and the lid fits very well. The material actually makes it much thicker and sturdier than my old hamper, and it is much more stylish. It's a little pricey, but I did a lot of looking around for a similar hamper, and most similar ones were either much poorer quality, way too small, or much more expensive. Definitely a good buy.

Well made basket/hamper!
It is a beautiful piece if it is intended for display. It does take up space so make sure you consider its dimensions. The lid is a perfect fit making it easy to open and close. A great purchase.
