This large laundry hamper comes all folded up and flat. Once we removed it from the packaging we realized that it was a very sturdy item. It was very easy to set up and the basket itself is pretty tall. The material is a waterproof material that seems like it will be easy to wipe clean. The lid has velcro on it so it stays put and doesn't come off until you lift it. It is a nice white and grey color and as holes on the top side for air circulation. This is a must have for apartments or dorms.
