Bought the Mercado Hamper (in size large) for my husband to put his laundry in. Its very elegant and looks pretty in our bedroom. My one 'con' is I think the price was a bit exorbitant for the item but otherwise it looks really great.
I purchased this as a laundry hamper. It’s very pretty and well made, but for some reason the lid does not fit on to the basket properly which is annoying. In hindsight I also wish I had purchased a hamper with handles, because this thing is tough to lug across the house.
Sara, Thank you for your note and feedback — it means the world. It sounds like our Mercado Hamper is hitting the mark in some areas, and not quite making the cut in others. We’re truly sorry about that. We’ve passed along your suggestion to add handles to our Design Team, and we’re hoping to incorporate that down the line. In the meantime, our Client Experience Team will reach out to you about that pesky lid. Although each of these hampers is created entirely by hand, that shouldn’t happen. And we want to make sure you love anything you purchase from us. Thank you again for your feedback. We look forward to making this right for you! Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
I just wish it were a little more rigid. It looks like it has the potential to lose shape over time.
Courtney, Thank you for your note - it means the world. We’re happy to hear that you’re loving your Mercado Hamper! Rest assured - we’ve designed these to stand the test of time. Each one is crafted from multiple layers of palm leaves — a natural fiber known for its durability and flexibility. With proper care, it should not lose its structural shape. If it does, please reach out and let us know. As a small token of thanks for your feedback, we’ve sent a gift to your inbox to help you find another piece for your home. Our treat. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
Size is great,finished well. Very high quality.
This is more of a storage basket than a hamper. It doesn’t have any handles so it’s very difficult to pick it up. For the price, this is a huge design flaw. Beautiful and sturdy nonetheless.
Carla, Thank you for the note and feedback - it means the world. We see that you have already exchanged this basket for one of our options with handles. We are so glad you could find something else that fit your needs. In the meantime, we have also passed along your notes about additional hampers with handles to our Head of Design. She said they were great comments and we will be sure to incorporate into future developments. Thank you again for the support. It means the world to us. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
We love this hamper! Not only does it smell like freshly-mowed hay, it looks gorgeous in our room. It's the perfect size for 2 people's laundry, and it's very sturdily constructed.
