Ru.basket / Third World supplies


Isn’t there a way for the people in the third world countries to do laundry more easily?
We propose the “ru.basket” that delivers such dual functions of a laundry basket and a washboard.
Equipped with the function of a washboard, “ru.basket” is laundry basket designed to solve the inconveniences people of the third world countries are experiencing when doing laundry.
Utilizing the principle of folding shutter, “ru.basket” can be expanded to easily hold and transport laundries. It can also be used as a washboard when folded up.
