Love these baskets, they're as beautiful as they are functional. One thing to keep in mind is they are not overly sturdy. For example the baskets will not support two year old twins trying to climb them :) Great for blanket/soft toy/hamper storage, just keep in mind they don't have any structural support beyond the organic woven material.
great for laundry hamper, but smell is very strong
Thank you for your note! We are glad that you are enjoying your hamper, but we are so sorry that your basket doesn't seem to be leaving you with the best impression! Each basket is made from woven grass palm, so there will be a light scent that will dissipate with time. If desired, we recommend spraying a mixture of essential oils to overpower any scent since the palm will absorb the new fragrance. Additionally, we recommend keeping this beauty away from high humidity sources such as bathroom areas. If you continue to experience an issue with your basket, please let us know and we are happy to take the next steps to resolve this for you. Thanks so much for your support of The Citizenry.
These are beautifully made, with nice lines, says the girl who doesn’t typically like baskets. The medium size makes a good hamper. It’s been a warm addition to our bedroom.
Beautiful piece, larger than expected, great quality
This flecked black and cream lidded basket is exactly what one little corner in our tiny and ancient den needed. The hand made textural complexity compliments the hand-hewn posts and beams in our mid 18th century house. It’s roomy volume will provide useful storage for either soft toys for grandchildren, extra throws and blankets in winter, porch pillows in summer. I love it!
Nice tight weave. Looks refined and hand crafted at the same time.
