False advertising and cheap materials,
This review is from: Household Essentials Folding Double Bag Laundry Hamper, Polyester Blend (Kitchen)
I was incredibly disappointed with this purchase. Most importantly the description falsely states that the hamper is made from "natural canvas." As other reviewers noted, it is actually made from a cheap, thin, noisy polyester-like fabric. I bought this item primarily because I thought I could throw the laundry hamper in with the laundry and keep the baskets sanitary. Not only is the fabric chintzy, it also isn't convenient to remove since you would need to unfasten 8 velcro straps before even unhooking the four hanging loops. The velcro attachments that strap the hamper onto the wood are also incredibly cheap. One of them literally fell off before I even could assemble it. It felt like the type of velcro one would expect on a throw away product that is not meant for long term use - very cheap plastic and poorly glued as opposed to being sewn or at least securely glued. Overall I would strongly recommend steering away from this product. There are far better products available. I also think it is unethical that this company is falsely advertising the fabric as natural canvas. Due to their negligence I wasted my time ordering the product, assembling it, and then had to take it apart, return all the pieces to the box, print out a return label and arrange return shipping with UPS. I also now have to be further inconvenienced as I do without laundry storage while I wait until a new product arrives. I may have given this product 2 stars but since it is not advertised truthfully it deserves zero.
