I have been a fan of straw, bamboo, baskets and wicker bags since... forever! You noticed that I have started wearing them regularly from approximately 3 years ago (at that time they were not a trend like today). I remember wearing my vintage bamboo bag at New York Fashion Week in 2015 Here when on the market was nothing like it. Last year in 2016 a brand called "Cult Gaia " took the idea and created a replica and almost all the "bloggers" have it...
I will say just that if you are looking in having unique pieces, look into vintage shops and also on Etsy. I personally love having "different" items (don't get me wrong, I do love luxury brands like Fendi, Sophie Hulme, and others) but these days( especially in the "Blogging World") almost everybody has them, is like a uniform, and I like to difference myself from the crowd + the over the top price tag sometimes most of the times is exaggerate.

Supporting artists and artisans that create good quality products is another aspect of today's post and some of you may remember that I strat talking about a few days back in this post Here.  I will definitely continue doing that and hopefully, we can change something, and other influencers may start doing the same.

So, today I'm sharing with you these lovely bags that are equally wonderful and affordable and I personally own a couple of them (you can see me wearing them HereHereHere and Here and the most recent ones Here and Here).

If you have questions about these bags don't hesitate to ask me and have a lovely week ahead!

    I have really cool handmade baskets from Jamaica (they were a pain to bring home on the plane but worth it, lol) and I wish one was small enough to use as a purse.

      You are so right Pat and let me tell you what to expect in the near future from me. I will be wearing all kind of baskets in particular from Africa, colorful in fun patterns and shapes, baskets that weren’t necessary BAGS, but I will wear them anyway because are to good just to hold newspapers or flowers pots :) I bet your baskets from Jamaica are equally wonderful!
      Send you a hug!

      I am happy to hear that Eva! Unique, qualitative and affordable is what we should all look for not to mention that in this way we support small business, artist and artisans around the world. Let’s do this!
