Beautiful Basket

This hamper is stunning, and looks amazing in person. The detail and craftsmanship make this a very sturdy and attractive addition to my bedroom. So glad I purchased this.

Definitely worth buying

This is the third hamper we've purchased for our home. They're durable, hold plenty and are the perfect aesthetic.

Highly recommend

The quality is what you pay for! This hamper is so beautiful I love having it out in our room! If I could buy everything from the Citizenry I would, but I’d be broke :)

Beautiful and worth it

I purchased the large Mercado hamper. It is beautiful and though the price is higher than any comparable hamper out there, I think the quality and look of this hamper is far superior and justifies the price. It also has a wonderful natural smell that I think helps to deodorize the clothing inside. Part of me regrets not buying the set, as I do think it would be nice to have the medium-sized hamper with handles. I love this like I love all my Citizenry purchases!

Very nice hamper.

The large hamper is worth the money. It’s sturdy and the perfect size.

Disappointing…especially for the price

I’ve been eyeing the large hamper for over a year so I finally ordered it. Unfortunately, the lid does not fit on top on the basket at all unless I spend significant time grappling with it (and even after I finally force it on, the basket looks contorted and lopsided). This lack of functionality is particularly disappointing given how pricey the item is.
