Very nice hamper.

The large hamper is worth the money. It’s sturdy and the perfect size.

Disappointing…especially for the price

I’ve been eyeing the large hamper for over a year so I finally ordered it. Unfortunately, the lid does not fit on top on the basket at all unless I spend significant time grappling with it (and even after I finally force it on, the basket looks contorted and lopsided). This lack of functionality is particularly disappointing given how pricey the item is.

Great hamper

This is one of many baskets I have ordered and they are all well made. This hamper is just the right size for my laundry room. Thinking of ordering another for the bathroom. Also the leather handles are very sturdy and nice looking.

Cultural light weight hamper

Matches well with a light airy & earthy tones and textures. Durable and well put together

Simple and stunning

It’s basically the most beautiful part of my bedroom. I was thinking I should put my laundry hamper in the trash but this is too stunning to hide!

Beautifully functional

This hamper is very well-made, and the lid fits perfectly. Unlike a previous reviewer, I detected no off-odor. If I actually put my head inside the hamper, there is a faint grassy smell, which, if anything, I find pleasant. The hamper is, after all, constructed of natural materials, and that is part of its charm. The only thing I would change is to make it a bit bigger.
