Mona Baskets - Black & Natural
A handwoven basket so stunning, you’ll find yourself wishing for clutter so you can add one to every room. Blending two types of natural fibers native to the region, this basket is durable, sturdy, and doubles as an art piece no matter where you style it.
The pattern is eye-catching and ever so cheeky, taking a design cue from the weavers’ natural surroundings (why yes, that is an abstract monkey). And the shape is truly what makes you do a double take — it’s so unique and sculptural.
Handwoven by a group of 25 artisans in Guapi, Cauca, each basket is made start-to-finish in a fair trade environment.
Medium - 10.5"L x 8"W x 25.5"H
Oversized- 14.5"L x 10.5"W x 33"H
Since each basket is handwoven, please expect some slight variation in size.
Chocolatillo and paja tetera fibers

I ordered the large and small baskets and am SO pleased with the construction and quality of the baskets. The large one holds all my throws in the family room. The small one is just for looks -- for now. Such classy and functional pieces. Worth every penny for such a unique piece.
Bought the set. They are stunning. Exceptionally well made. I checked the height measurements b4 buying so wasn’t surprised how high they are. BUT I never checked width. And they are WIDE. So wide they are nearly unusable in our house together which is why I bought them. Too big to get the box into my car to return them. Plus there’s the return cost. The restocking fee, etc. I’m kinda screwed. BUT THEY ARE REALLY BEAUTIFUL.
Hi Linda, We are so happy to hear you think these baskets are as beautiful as we do! Our artisans put so much time and care into each piece, so we are thrilled these can be part of your home. However, we are so sorry to hear that the returns process did not seem as easy as we’d hoped. We’re always available to assist with an easy return- which always includes a pre-paid return label- and schedule an at home pickup if needed. Please reach out to email@example.com if you’d like some help! Thank you again for your feedback, and enjoy those baskets! Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
We keep it near the fireplace for branches and paper that accumulate for future fires. It's changed the whole look of that area from disorganized to pure flair. I couldn't be happier with its quality. I can also see getting a second to store throws in the future. I also love that it's handcrafted in Colombia. I think about that all the time. I will definitely shop Citizenry again.
Worth the price. These baskets are gorgeous pieces of art. They are perfect for filling an empty space or storing throws. I love them!
I ordered a large Mona basket. I needed something in my large bedroom to put away my yoga mat and props. It is beautiful and unique. The quality, craftsmanship and built deserve 5 stars. It is large but closing in at the top so you don’t see what’s inside. Stable and stays put on the floor. Love it!
This basket is well made and very unique. I love the basket but do feel it is somewhat over priced.
