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.

I knew the measurements when I bought it, but it feels larger than expected in person.
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.
I liked the set of cube Mercado storage baskets so much for tidying up around the apartment that I ended up picking up the Mercado Floor basket set for offseason closet clothes. Clearly built to last and a joy to use with small details like the soft leather handles and general artisanal quality. Nestable when not in use is also a really nice touch for the set.
The basket looks exactly as it does on the website. It is a beautiful light color with leather handles. The weaving is very fine, not clunky and bulky like most baskets. And although it is finely woven, it holds its shape well- is not flimsy. I bought the large size and use it to hold rolled up throws in my den.
