When looking for a wicker hamper with a lid, you need to check closely that it really is wicker because it could be just plastic. A real one is made out of natural wood, grass or fiber and maybe handcrafted by an artisan who probably has been doing it their whole life.
I chose these 5 baskets because of their looks as well as their ratings. Oh, don’t get me wrong, ratings are important because the quality is important. But just as important is what they do for your home decor. Otherwise, we would just put old garbage cans in our bathrooms or closets for our dirty clothes.
I tried to find some that might cover a lot of individual tastes and needs. Some are light color and some are dark brown.
Some have 2 compartments to separate your clothes before you get to the laundry room. This is good for someone who has to wash their clothes somewhere else and don’t want to separate the wash there.
Some have covers attached. Some are rectangle or square and others are round.
Water Hyacinth Laundry Hamper With 2 Compartments
The cotton canvas bags help protect your clothes and the inside of the hamper. They just lift out easily. Its measurements are 28″ long x 13.5″ wide x 27″ high. Capacity is 28 lbs. Lid is attached.
It also comes in a dark brown and honey color blend. Also very nice.
Extra Large Round Wicker Hamper With Lid
This one also has a removable cotton liner and removable lid with a leather handle. Its measurements are 23″ diameter by 28″ high. It is handcrafted and hand dyed by Indonesian artisans out of natural rattan.
This also comes in 2 sizes and 2 colors. The one is the picture is toasted oat and the other not shown is antique walnut brown which I now like better than the toasted oat. The smaller size nests inside the larger one. There is a discount when you buy the 2 together.
Willow Hamper With Wicker Reed Frame And Lid
This woven wooden laundry hamper has removable liner and lid. Its measurements are 18″ wide x 14″ deep x 21″ high. It comes in 4 colors: white, gray, brown and black which is shown here.
I like this because it looks like lace. You can also change the looks by pairing them with different color liners than the one they come with.
For example, the white comes with a white liner. It would look great if you made a hunter green liner to go in it instead. The hamper would still be white, but you can change the liner color to suit what color you need. Just a thought.
Seagrass And Abaca Square Hamper With Lid
This one is handwoven with seagrass and abaca fibers and coated with lacquer to enhance its range of colors. It also has a washable canvas bag that’s easy to lift out. Measurements are 14.4″ long x 14″ wide x 27″ high. Lid is attached.
It also comes in a divided double hamper. Measurements are 19″ long x 13″ wide x 25″ high. Same beautiful color.
Round Rattan Hamper With Removable Lid
This has a removable washable liner and removable lid. It’s handwoven in the Philippines out of rattan. I like the white wash surface. The light color makes it perfect for a nursery. Its measurements are 17″ diameter x 24″ high.
