When living in New York City, having a washer and dryer at home is quite a rare commodity— in most cases because of the lack of square footage. That's why plenty of New Yorkers take their dirty laundry literally somewhere else. For us, owning a good and sturdy laundry bag is a bare necessity. After having gone through a number of them, I found and immediately purchased a couple of these fun laundry bags by Izola. Inspired by vintage naval aesthetics, they're constructed from a heavy-duty cotton/poly canvas and are large enough to manage heavy loads. The reinforced stitched handle and adjustable shoulder strap allow for easy handling to the laundry room or cleaners—doubling their function as a perfect gym bag or everyday duffle bag. The thick rope laced through reinforced brass rings at the top of each bag keeps your clothes bundled tight to avoid losing any or your prized possessions. Let's face it, these stylish laundry bags might be the perfect motivator to get you to do that pile of laundry that you've been procrastinating about. Happy weekend!
