As is everything from the citizenry, this basket is so beautiful and so well made. I use it as a laundry basket(moving over clothes to another basket when I do laundry ) and it is such a beautiful piece to the bedroom, so that the laundry can blend in as more like a decor piece than laundry. I highly recommend, would also be lovely for extra throw blankets in a living room.
After searching for the perfect sized basket (most are either too small or oversized) - this was the winner! Great size & quality. First time I have ordered from The Citizenry & I could not be more pleased.
This is a great basket, very sturdy. And heavy. I was looking for a laundry basket, which this was too heavy for, which is why I returned it. Seems great if you're using it for storage and not moving it a lot.
This basket is perfect. I am in love with it. It’s incredibly well made and I’m sure it will last a very long time. Couldn’t be happier.
This basket is even more beautiful and sturdy than I expected. I am using it to store text books and other papers, with some pretty blankets on top to hide everything. I would buy more baskets of this style.
