Retractable Bucket / Bucket

Retractable Bucket

In many underdeveloped countries and regions, people use buckets to transport water, and infrastructure are kept within bounds. The retractable bucket can be folded as a hat at ordinary times, which is convenient to carry and can be opened to hold water when it needs to be transported. This design not only can transport water conveniently, but also can be used as decoration at ordinary times. The innovative design reduces the transportation cost and improves the resource utilization efficiency.
