Looking for a hamper that's cool enough that family members might actually use it? Take a look at the lovely hampers from Lovell Designs. [via Apartment Therapy]
Hey-Sign has felt laundry baskets, in grey and in bright colors; you can buy them here.
Another unusual option is this laundry basket made from vetiver, a "deep growing and naturally aromatic root." The vendor says that "the natural aroma of the vetiver root hamper should keep even the dirtiest laundry smelling fresh." Update on August 25, 2012: The Global Exchange Fair Trade online store that was selling this laundry basket is offline, although the organization does have physical stores that are still open. But you can find a vetiver and linen hamper online at 7 Hopes United.
And then there are the stunning baskets made by the Wolof Weavers of Senegal; they're "woven from a local grass and plastic strips recycled from used prayer mats." You can find them Swahili African Modern, VivaTerra, and Connected Goods.
