How to Recognize a Hip Laundry Hamper

A hip laundry hamper is one that doesn’t really look like a laundry hamper at all! Some traditional laundry baskets are made from plastic and don’t necessarily look that great. Nowadays, there are lots of different options on the market, and with wicker and rope baskets become a feature in many interiors, hip laundry hampers have never been more accessible.

By using a more stylish laundry hamper in your bedroom, you can leave it out on display in a corner without worrying that it makes the room look messy! Many hip laundry hampers come with stylish lids that keep the contents hidden from view.

Laundry Hamper Fun Facts:

The term “hamper” dates back to as early as the 14th Century! And referred to a large goblet or cup. Woven baskets were heavily used in ancient Egypt and were used to keep clean and dirty clothes separated.

Nowadays, a laundry hamper is used in exactly the same way! They are typically large baskets that help us to organize dirty clothes, and keep them hidden and out of the way from clean clothes that are still within the wardrobe.

In the early 2000’s many of us preferred the cotton or fabric laundry hampers to add some color or pattern into the bedroom, but nowadays with the rise of more minimalistic and neutral homes, we tend to prefer the traditional woven hampers.
