Accordion Washtub / Accordion Washtub

Accordion Washtub
Accordion Washtub

People living in the third world walk far to river or wells for washing with heavy blankets and clothes in both hands and they wash the laundry on stones rubbing it without any special tools.
It needs much more water and power to wash without any tools than using a washboard and the laundry can be easily worn out due to the friction of the stones and Fabrics. People also squeeze all the clothes with only hands and dry them on the floor.
product concept!
Accordion Washtub is a multi-functional washing drum with an accordion wrinkles motif designed for a convenient washing process including transportation, washing, spin-drying and drying.
