No assembly required so that was good. The banana leaf itself was softer in some areas that others, which caused some parts to be hanging off and flaking off as I opened the box. I actually had to take a scissor to some pieces of it so that they would not be hanging off, but now those areas are lighter than the rest, so it looks weird. The liner inside the basket is smaller than the basket itself so you cannot hold as much laundry in it as you think. Also one of the metal prongs that holds the liner up came unattached in the box and I just had to try and stick it in between the weaves to hold up the liner.

This hamper is very nice looking and stylish. I like the attached, lift lid, rather than the loose lid so many of the natural fiber hampers seem to have. This one , the large, was too big for my space, but the customer service person was so helpful to send me a return label for this and I am getting the medium size in it's place. I am a self-employed interior designer and tend to be rather particular with my own place and this was exactly the style I want.

I was disappointed the hamper could not be ordered in brown and other than it does not sit flat, I am happy with my purchase.
After reading the reviews I expected the hamper to have an odor for awhile but that was not the case.

This is a very nice quality hamper for a great price that's hard to beat. Shipping was also very fast...got here in just a few days. Also looks good in a bedroom due to the nice finish. I wish they still had the round ones available otherwise I'd get one of those too. As one reviewer stated...there is an odd organic odor, presumably from the banana leaves. I've only had this a week, so hope it subsides in time, though things get washed anyway, so hopefully wouldn't transfer onto clothing.

I needed a laundry hamper that could hold a week's worth of laundry and look nice in the bedroom where it is kept. This one fit the bill. It came already assembled right out of the box, and even had a nice, warm grassy smell that must come from the banana leaves. I love the inner liner that is held in place with hooks and loops. This means when I want to take the dirty clothes out of the basket, I just unhook the liner and lift the hole thing out. No more taking clothes out of the hamper an armful at a time and putting them in a cumbersome basket or bag to haul downstairs to the laundry room. Now, it's just lift, carry, and dump on the floor for sorting. The basket's neutral color goes with nearly any decor and works very well in our somewhat eclectic room with antiques and modern design combined. Nice!

the hamper I received was much lower quality, loosely woven from larger, coarser leaves that were also darker.

We use this natural "hamper" in our kitchen as our recycling bin. It comes with a cloth inner liner, but the hooks are perfect for suspending a 13 gal. plastic kitchen bag, too; just stretch the plastic over the hooks and you're good to go; you can re-use the same bag as often as you like.
It did have a mild grass-like scent when it arrived because it's made out of organic material, but it quickly diminished to next to nothing. It looks great and does the job perfectly.

Excellent choice for a small space. I am using it behind a closet door where it fits to perfection in a little alcove. It's very attractive and the detachable liner is a great touch. It is well made and should be usable for many years. I am happy with this choice, plus there was no assembly required. That's really important to those of us who buy products online. All in all, I consider this a good value.
