“They are handmade”

I was recently asked about the manufacturing process of my straw bags which I was happy to respond with “They are handmade”.
My straw bags are all handmade by local artisans in Morocco & Ghana. As with any product handmade, quality is above and beyond mass produced straw bags.
All my Coconut Lace bags are beautifully hand woven with great attention to details, and workmanship.
Shop our full collection and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy personalizing them.

Straw Totes: How to wear

I often get asked how to style a straw tote/bag and I always answer, however you like!
Who says there is a rule on where and how to wear a straw bag? In the 70’s, actress Jane Birkin was always photographed with her trademark straw basket, she even paired it with a chic black cocktail dress.
In recent years, fashion has started to break the mold of rules allowing for a more simple and natural approach on things. If you are wearing a pair of jeans, a tank and want to carry your straw tote/bag then, why not? Who says they are only beach friendly!
I have shared a few looks to inspire you to carry your own straw bag. For any inquires or orders, please visit our Shop section on the blog.
