The Laundro Spinn is a tool kit for women in developing countries. First of all, it is to make the work easier with the needed design features for the sake of function. But most importantly it is a product that admits the activities of the women as hard work. Working tools have been developing and revising for better performance and convenience, thus the laundry machine in western culture. To admit and appreciate the work of housekeeping women in third countries, the right tools should be developed for them to perform their work better and easier. The aim is to reduce the hardship that they have while doing the laundry. Inspired by the traditional pot / basket shape, the bucket is designed to fit different functions in all. First. the women in developing countries have to carry clothes quite a distance to get access to the water. By putting all the kit together, it works as a bucket to hold laundry.
