Very good quality basket. Large size is good for storing a few throws and even a small decorative pillow. It is an understated beauty. Feels great to buy a product produced by fairly paid artisans!

More perfect than perfect

I’ve had my eye on the mercado large hamper for about a year. My major hesitation was the price and if the quality would match. All I can say is WOW. This basket is everything. It is so sturdy and so much thicker than expected. For me, it holds a weeks worth of laundry. I cannot wait to love this hamper for years.

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!
