Clothesline Laundry Hamper by reisenthelÂ®
I wanted something bigger than my small umbra collapsable one (it filled up in just a few days) and my two small dogs were always stealing things or sleeping in it, cute but also annoying. I looked around the store searching high and low and had originally waved this option off and I have no idea why. I thought I didn't want another "soft" hamper, but I was dead wrong.
I love the whimsy of the print, as that is what initially attracted me to this specific hamper, but then I started to look at it more closely. It has a small footprint (a must when you live in a smaller flat and must maximize space), but it also is tall without getting to wide at top. What is even better is that it closes flat at the top, allowing what I already have in place in my closet to not move, another bonus.
I really debated between the black one with the attractive stainless handles and this one, as that one had one more magnet at the top instead of one, but I really liked the removable (I will call it) boning in the sides of this particular one. There are two long, very sturdy, thin rods that have their own specially built and Velcro sealed compartments within (that come out when the hamper needs a washing) the hamper to help keep it upright that the more sleek one did not.
And lets be honest. My closet is already tricked out in elfa to the max (the lowly white) and I am still low on space in my overall house, so I really don't care what the actual look of my hamper is in the end. I am happy because this is a fun and cute print, and as I was at the register, I was told I could use this as a beach bag... well, maybe a very large beach bag, but maybe!

I really like the hamper, I picked this special one because of the dÃ©cor of my laundry room. My husband did draw a circle of heavy cardboard wrapped in heavy plastic to place on the bottom of the hamper to keep it more sturdy. I still am not sure if the hamper is washable and dryable, however. It would be nice if the hamper was lined with a washable lining. Otherwise, I like it very much; it is the perfect size for my room.

Great for declottering
My husband is disabled and so we need as much space available as possible. We found the hamper was always getting in the way.. so we went and bought this along with a door hook where we could put one of the handles on the hook and leave open. It is GREAT!! It holds as much as our large hamper does and makes it so convenient to just take it off the hook and head to the laundry room. Besides it looks great!

Cute and Functional
I purchased this hamper for both myself and my daughter for her college dorm room. I absolutely love the design of the product, which originally drew me to visit the container store and purchase this item after I viewed it online. Not only is this hamper the cutest thing ever, it is also functional and does it's job. In my opinion, this laundry hamper suits all ages and it's fun, whimsical design is a plus, allowing you to display it wherever necessary. Overall, a great find!
