Lid doesn't fit

This is the 3rd Mercado Hamper I've purchased in 2020. The first 2 hampers worked out great. Look great. The lid fits. The 3 hamper was stretched out at top making the circumference of the basket wider than normal therefore the lid does NOT fit. I've returned it and asked for a new Mercado Hamper & Lid. NOW THEY ARE OUT OF STOCK!!! I've been give a credit but I just want a new Mercado Hamper. I've requested notification when you have them back in stock. Given the fact that I ordered this basket MONTHS ago and now apparently it will take MONTHS to get them back in stock, I would really appreciate being notified immediately when they are available so I can re-order. Candidly, since this issue is a Citizenry issue, it would be nice if you held one of the Mercado Hamper's & Lid for me and then notified me to place a re-order so that I can be assured of receiving the basket before they sell out again...

Hi Barbara, Thank you for your note — although we’re so sorry that this was your experience. At times, due to the handwoven nature of the baskets, inconsistencies in terms of size can occur. But still. The lid being entirely too small should never have happened. These are some of our most popular baskets and do take time for our artisan partners to make by hand. As you know they are definitely worth the wait! We spoke with our Client Experience Team and are happy to hear they’ve been in touch with you. Be sure to sign up for our waitlist — you’ll be the first to know when they’re back! Thank you so much for your continued support. We hope we can continue to create beautiful spaces together in the future. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team

Beautiful craftmanship with functional, simple design

Laundry basket adds simple style to the room, and does it's job well. Leather handles are solid. Medium size - when it's overflowing, it's big enough for a full load in our front-loading washer.

Perfect! Do wish there was a handle on the lid, but the size is everything I wanted!

Who knew a clothes hamper could add so much beauty!

This hamper is gorgeous and exactly as pictured. It is not lined, but it doesn’t need lining as the handwoven palm is very smooth. A functional, beautiful work of art!
