December 17, 2019

Doing laundry may be a chore, but there’s an upside to every situation. Our wicker baskets make stunning laundry baskets with an array of options to choose from. Whether you’re looking for options to sort, fold, store, or conceal, our selection will simplify and beautify your life. Each hand-crafted piece is slightly different, making them unique wicker baskets that add a touch of décor to any bathroom, closet, or laundry room. If you’re wondering why any old laundry basket isn’t good enough, take a look at a few compelling reasons why a wicker laundry basket is the right choice.

  • Durability and longevity
  • Functionality
  • Hide dirty laundry in plain sight
  • Lined
  • Eco- friendly rattan

Durability and Longevity

Wicker baskets offer durability and longevity you don’t typically find with a conventional laundry basket. Hand-woven with beautiful, sturdy rattan, our laundry baskets are carefully crafted by our dedicated artisans. Each basket is created to withstand the weight of all your laundry, so don’t be afraid to fill them up! They are naturally flexible and won’t lose their shape, even after many heavy loads. Most offer extra reinforcements, such as strong pole framing and wooden bottoms. Other options tend to crack or buckle with the weight, and you'll find yourself spending more money to replace them in the long run.

You may not expect artistically crafted wicker baskets to offer durability as well as longevity. Don’t let the delicate look fool you! Our Wicker French Laundry Basket with a protective fabric liner offers sturdy woven handles able to accommodate everything from socks to towels. For those that can’t resist this basket’s charming French style, it even has the strength to handle your firewood. We offer this beauty in both Serene Grey and Antique Walnut finishes.

Functionality

Perhaps one of the most beneficial reasons to use wicker baskets as laundry baskets are their functionality. With so many styles and sizes to choose from, we know you’ll find the perfect fit for your laundry needs. They are undeniably strong, making them much more desirable than lugging your usual laundry basket or hamper around the house.

Our Oval Wicker Laundry Basket offers tons of space and is easy to transport by sturdy ear handles. The fabric liner, with convenient hook-and-loop tabs, will keep your clothing protected at all times. It’s a classic look, sure to pair well with any of your existing home décor.

If you need a basket that works well in smaller spaces where a laundry basket is needed, or to place folded items into then distribute throughout your home be sure to consider our Rectangular Wicker Storage Basket or the slightly larger version in our Jumbo Wicker Storage Basket.

If you happen to need a laundry basket to tote your items to and from your nearby laundry mat or apartment laundry room, you’ll wonder how you ever survived without the Ombak Weave Oval Laundry Basket. Comfortable to carry and roomy enough to carry a full laundry load, this tapered shaped basket will make your life so much easier — no more heavy lifting with this lightweight rattan. Not to mention, you’ll have the best-looking basket there. ** This basket is not lightweight and it is kind of large. That said it is our most stunning laundry basket with the ombak weave and sweeping ear handles.**

If you’re shopping for a laundry hamper that can fit in small spaces, we have options for you too. The Corner Wicker Laundry Hamper was created with your needs in mind. Fitting inconspicuously into the corner of any small bathroom, closet, or bedroom, this fan-shaped hamper gets the job done without intruding on your limited room. In our Antique Walnut Brown, you’ll appreciate the extra room you can save with this hinged-lidded space saver.

The Beauty of a Basket

Wicker baskets are known for their intricate designs and stunning appeal. The appearance is by far our favorite reason to choose a wicker laundry basket over any other. Each basket is created by hand, so your basket will be one-of-a-kind. Each slight variation of weave and dye give these beautiful wicker baskets their personality. And you just can’t beat the ability to leave your wicker laundry basket out in plain sight without it screaming, “unattractive!” Even in small spaces, the beauty of a wicker laundry basket allows you to store it out in the open without being an eyesore. Instead, the intricate weaving becomes the new focal point, not your dirty socks.

You’ll love the variations in each laundry basket or laundry hamper’s beautiful weave design. The convenient lidded choices are almost too hard to choose between and also offer a variety of color options to match the look of any room you plan to use them in. Choose from colors including:

  • Toasted Oat
  • Antique Walnut Brown
  • Serene Grey
  • Batu Grey

Lining for More than Appearance

While we agree that a fabric-lined wicker basket is very striking, there are many benefits as well. The fabric lining prevents odors from your towels, bedding, and clothing from transferring to your natural rattan (not a statement that I’m comfortable making). It also serves as a moisture barrier, protecting the wicker from absorbing it (not a statement that I’m comfortable making). Your wicker basket will also be much easier to clean. The removable lining makes it quick and easy to toss in with a load, so you won’t need to worry about cleaning food left by soiled clothing from in between the weaving. You also won’t need to worry about your clothing getting any little snags. The fabric lining will keep your items protected.

The 3-Compartment Wicker Laundry Hamper is the perfect choice for your closets or out on display in your larger bathrooms, bedrooms or laundry room. Large-gauge rattan makes this a durable hamper and offers you three spacious compartments for easy sorting. Each area is individually lined and can be pulled out to make carrying quick and straightforward. This lidded hamper has two cut out handles for maneuvering and hides your dirty laundry in style.

Eco-friendly Rattan

Rattan is not only an eye-catching, natural choice but an environmentally friendly one too. Rattan vines are known for their quick growth and low maintenance. Because they can only grow in forests that have large trees, growing rattan reinforces the need to maintain and sustain precious large growth forests that other plants and animals thrive in. Just another fantastic benefit of choosing a wicker laundry basket.
