It’s useful, durable, looks cool and will last me years for sure. Great purchase!
I just received my basket today and I am in love. I recently transitioned in my career and am able to upgrade my house decor. I have scoured the internet and in person stores looking for lifelong decorative items that also meet ethical standards of production. I am so thankful I came across the citizenry. While this is by no means a cheap alternative option, the price point matches the quality- a standard I’ve found that is rarely met. If you are someone who is looking to fill their home with items to cherish, look no further. Regarding the basket specifically: the basket is flexible but still sturdy, the leather handles are beautiful with perfect stitching, and the weave seems meticulous. There is wonderful color variation that is not artificial but a mark of the genuine source material. I bought a large and was able to fit three large blankets easily.
The medium is a perfect size for rolled up bath towels in my bathroom.
Needed the perfect organizer for a collection of magazine that was overwhelming a corner of my living. The basket is stylish, roomy, and the handles makes it easily mobile.
I purchased a medium basket to use as a hamper and I can’t get enough of it, it’s a beautiful, organic, and high quality addition to my life. I actually enjoy doing laundry just because I get to carry this gorgeous item around my house. You will not regret it, unlike cheaper airbrushed versions out there, this basket doesn’t collapse and has sturdy handles that work well when the basket is full of laundry, it’s flexible enough for me to pick it up with one hand by both handles yet completely retains its shape. It looks just like the picture and it’s well made. I am in love!
We use the basket to carry laundry up and down one flight of steps...easily holds an entire load. It looks beautiful, is well made, and seems built to last for at least a decade. We actually like keeping it on display, and it’s well worth the price!
