Fast shipping. I was excited about buying this wastebasket as a way of previewing the African patchwork shower curtain I've pre-ordered. As I opened the shipping box and lifted up the wastebasket I realized it's made out of the SAME panel prints and materials as an African patchwork shower curtain I ordered from another company--hence, deductive reasoning tells me the same cooperative is being used to produce these wares. Okay, fine...but can the cooperative use just as many different print panels as the patchwork items seen in the listing photos? The more print panels used in a patchwork item, the more colorful and prettier the final patchwork design. I'll keep this wastebasket, but I wouldn't call it 'joyful' due to the small number of different panels used to create it.
