The Citizenry

Every time The Citizenry announces a fresh collection we wait with bated breath to get a glimpse of each beautiful, artisan-crafted piece, and the brand's new Colombia Collection certainly delivered.

Designed with minimalism in mind, the collection includes everything you've come to expect from The Citizenry—think woven baskets, cotton textiles, wool blankets, and accent rugs—done in an effortlessly stylish way. The brand partnered with 178 Colombian artisans, who worked with natural materials found deep in the Amazon jungle, to bring Colombia's heritage to our homes.

"When looking to where our path could lead us next, we searched for a country that cultivates unique designs along with unique resources," textile designer Caris Fawcett explains. "With its vast amount of ecosystems and abundance of natural fibers, along with its rich craft traditions, Colombia became a clear answer.” 

And while each piece feels decidedly minimalist thanks to the neutral color palette, simple styles, and natural materials, you don't have to be a minimalist yourself to love the collection.

This collection is very textural, tonal, natural, and subtle in color so the artisans' craftsmanship can take centerstage.

"This collection is very textural, tonal, natural, and subtle in color so the artisans' craftsmanship can take centerstage," co-founder Carly Nance tells MyDomaine. "It's organic and warm, but not overpowering—so it can mix into so many décor styles. I hope customers with all different tastes are inspired to add these works of art into their home.”

The Citizenry Panera Table Baskets

"There is no one 'Colombian basket;' design," product development director Anita Akella explains. "We find that the baskets made by the people of the Amazonian jungle are entirely different from those made by the people living on the Caribbean coast, or in the rainforests of the Choco. It's not just the materials of the baskets that are different in each region—their shapes, motifs, colors and most importantly the stories woven into them—all are unique."

The Citizenry Tolima Striped Brushed Wool Throw

Hand brushing the locally-sourced sheep’s wool used to craft this blanket is the secret to its luxuriously soft feel. Each throw takes two days to complete as well, so you know its been handwoven with care.
