Air Your Dirty Laundry: Savannah Divided Seagrass Hamper

One of the biggest problems my husband and I face is where to keep our dirty laundry. I mean that literally — not figuratively. Right now, we’re using a ratty old collapsible nylon hamper I’ve had since college, and the thing really is on its last legs. But we appreciate that it has a pretty large capacity, where other, more stylish options, are generally designed to hold smaller loads.

The Savannah Divided Hamper from Pottery Barn just may be our next pick, as it does a good job of combining form and function. The capacity still doesn’t seem very large, but I love the fact that we’d be able to separate two loads. It’s also pretty great to look at, as hampers go, and it wouldn’t be an eyesore like our current solution.

Considering our cloth hamper will soon be rendered unusuable, this is a great alternative. We’ll just have to figure out a way to recycle what’s left of the current hamper. I graduated from college in 2003, so I’d say for something so cheap, it’s served us pretty well. For $179, the Pottery Barn hamper better last at least twice as long. And if it helped me achieve a bathroom as beautiful and well-organized as the photo above, I’d be a happy camper.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of seagrass

Price: $179 (aff)

    Very cute… I need something like this so I don’t have to LOOK at the laundry as it piles up.

    Now.. I just need a laundry chute to get it to the basement :)

    You did get good use out of your old hamper. ; )
    I got the same use out of mine from college until I got married and we switched to a bigger more portable hamper ;)

    Having the right hamper that looks good and does the job is so nice to have, too! Hope it works well for you!

    @Suzanne I’m definitely with you on that! There’s nothing that makes a room look a mess faster than a pile of dirty laundry.

    These are beautiful! And they look much more grown-up than my own collapsible laundry baskets.

    These are beautiful. I’ve had the same wicker hamper since I was a kid. Seriously, it’s 30+ years old.

    I recently bought a similar woven reed hamper at IKEA that looks lovely and is triangle-shaped to fit neatly in a corner. Alas, I vastly underestimated the amount of laundry that my boyfriend and I accumulate, and within a few days of doing laundry, my cute little grassy hamper is marred by overflowing tees and jeans. ::sigh::
