11 Alluring Laundry Bags

3 ruffled laundry bags

I've written about laundry hampers before - but what if you'd prefer to use a laundry bag? Here are some of the more unusual options out there.

1. The White Devil laundry bags from India Rose, shown above, are the ones that inspired this post. [via the now-defunct Blueprint magazine, and write on and more]

2. Here's a lady's laundry bag.

3. And here's a laundry bag featuring somewhat different apparel.

4. This embroidered laundry bag is a replica of one found in an antique shop.

5. Amy Forster has a number of laundry bags, with designs ranging from polka dots or flowers to the surfboards-and-palm-trees design shown here. Update on Jan. 10, 2011: The Amy Forster web site isn't working, and I'm not finding these products anywhere else.

6. Annie G makes some pretty floral laundry bags. Update on Jan. 10, 2011: Annie's web site seems to have disappeared.

7. The Laundry has bags with spots or zinnias. Update on June 22, 2012: This site doesn't sell laundry bags any more.

8. I'm not sure how practical this silk laundry bag from Aroma Home is - but it sure is pretty. The bags come in four colors, and each one comes with a scented sachet. Update on Feb. 19, 2010: Aroma Home no longer sells these bags.

French linen / laundry bag

9. This lovely French linen/laundry bag comes from Maris Sharp in Brittany. Update on June 22, 2012: Maris Sharp's web site has disappeared.

10. And this tapestry laundry bag comes from Australia, and has quite a story behind it.

11. Finally, here's a simple elegant laundry bag from Josephine Home; you have 12 choices of colors for the embroidery and matching ribbon. (And you can have something other than "laundry" as the embroidered word.)

Pretty snazzy, Jeri!

I didn't check the prices on the other bags, but today's currency conversion rate makes that last one almost $150.

And yet, it doesn't actually do the darn laundry!

Cynthia, I think that last laundry bag was far and away the most expensive one, with the tapestry bag coming in second. Would it be useful for me to include prices when I do a post like this one?

Including prices seems like lots of extra work for you, especially if you need to convert them to dollars. I think anyone who's motivated to find out the price will click on the link, as I did.

It's always great fun to see all the beautiful stuff you've discovered!

Greetings from rural Australia.

Thank you so much for featuring Mr Chin's Laundry Bag as number 10 in your list of 11 Alluring Laundry Bags.

A lovely gentleman in the entertainment industry in Hollywood CA discovered it on your blog today and placed on order by telephone. It's a surprise gift for his wife. And kindly emailed me the link to your blog.

I read the previous comments and yes, I'm always interested in prices as well, Jeri.

For your readers, Mr Chin's Tapestry Bag is $97.00 and the plain Mr Chin's in Rich Chocolate is $65.00. So they are a specialty item.

Once again, thank you. This is how you help us grow, Jeri. If I can help you in any way in return, please let me know.

Take care,
