Right before the snow storm hit the state, we had a very warm 60-degree day, a good reason to spend the day in Philadelphia. I dressed easy and casual in camel, black, with pops of green here and there. I do love the green color on everything, especially a dark green shade as my Marni shoes. Now, I added to my "green things to love collection" this Portuguese handmade reed and willow basket bag from incredibly talented Toino Abel.
I love so many aspects about this bag: the traditional motifs, the shape/size proportions, the colors, and last but not least the well-made craftsmanship.
It is nice finding different and qualitative pieces like this basket and it is my pleasure to support artist and artisans from around the world, by bringing them to your attention (I need to mention that this is not a sponsored post) is just that I decided to do that more often (even though I started for a while), I will be more open about this aspect.
We all need to make a difference & to different ourselves from the crowd...
