Large Square Mercado Basket
I have one of the round Mercado baskets and absolutely love it. I bought a square one (the 14x14 size) to store some toys in but it was too big for what I needed so I returned it for two of the small ones, which are on their way. Regardless, I love these baskets and wish I had a reason to keep the large one. They’re so beautifully made and the quality is so much better than other baskets I’ve found. Return process was easy too!

Beautiful and sturdy.
Love the color, design, and craftsmanship of these baskets. They are neutral enough to go with any color pallet, slim/streamlined in their construction, and such a unique shape that I couldn’t find anywhere else. The only thing that doesn’t make this basket perfect (for me), is the size options. My ideal would’ve be the height of the large basket and footprint of the medium basket. Ultimately went with the medium, and am happy with them, but would’ve been over the moon with a more substantial size that could still work in a smaller space :)
Good morning Sarah, Thank you so much for the note. I have gone ahead and shared your recommendation with the design team for consideration. We really appreciate feedback like yours, as it only helps us get better. Please reach out should you need anything - we are always here to help!
I've wanted this for years, unfortunate I waited so long, as it is a fantastic addition.
A tight weave and consistent colors make this basket a sophisticated yet textured addition to the bedroom.
It’s better than advertised
It’s useful, durable, looks cool and will last me years for sure. Great purchase!
Perfect and stunning
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.
