“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.

The Social

Did you catch us on The Social Fashion Segment with Erica Wark. Erica talked about vacation fashion and we loved seeing our Bee Bag be part of the vacation looks.

Two things I love; Fashion & Home Design.

Reading in these Glasses

I have finally managed to pick out a pair of reading glasses.
Since I was due for a new prescription, I started the hunt a few months back but couldn’t decide on a frame. I know I wanted it to be over sized, thick frame and not an overly populated or overdone designer. So when I finally found these William Morris pair I fell in love (truth be told I loved a Celine pair but went back and found out they were sold).
Here are a few looks that I also liked.

Fur Pompom

While fur is usually used for coats & accessories in winter, the biggest fashion houses seem to be doing the opposite and incorporating it into sandals!
Well aware that this may not be a favoured trend for ethical reasons, I have been obsessing over the Monster Fendi shoes.
Here are a few looks I love. What are your thoughts?
