Mercado Floor Baskets
Meticulously handcrafted from locally-sourced palm leaves and accented with luxe leather handles, this set of low-profile baskets make stashing clutter look good. Designed in a shallow, yet roomy size, these baskets are perfect for storing books, towels, or shoes. And bonus - their short stature makes them easy to slide under your bed or coffee table.
Each basket is handcrafted by a cooperative of master artisans in Guerrero, Mexico. All made start-to-finish in a fair trade environment, it takes about three days to complete.
Also available in black and natural.
Medium - 18"W x 8"H
Large - 20"W x 10"H
Since each basket is handwoven, please expect some slight variation in size.

As described. Large, well woven (no loose material). Stunning. Perfect for our living room.
I knew the measurements when I bought it, but it feels larger than expected in person.
This basket looks very nice but it smells like fresh hay and not in a good way. I put blankets in the basket and the smell transferred onto the blankets. I won’t be keeping this after all.
Sam, Thank you for the note — your feedback means the world. Since our Mercado Baskets are handwoven from all-natural palm leaves, that often means that they bring an earthy aroma with them when they first arrive. Rest assured that this lessens over time. If the odor is just too much, our team would love to help you find a basket that better suits your needs. Thank you again for your honest feedback. We’re sending a gift to your inbox as a thank you for taking the time to help make us better. Sincerely, -The Citizenry Team
Love the construction, lightweight but undeniably sturdy. Look gorgeous in my living room holding blankets, etc. we loved them so much that we bought more Mercado baskets in other shapes just a few days later.
Really happy with this purchase - I needed a basket in my room to hold sweatshirts, scarves etc. and it fits perfectly what I envisioned - big enough to hold quite a bit and shallow enough that things don’t get buried or look messy. Feels very sturdy and well made.
