So much to do, and so much to carry. We are always in search of that perfect bag for function and fashion. We’ve found it in this Sandro Raffia Tote. It’s a must-have! It’s clean and crisp. It is big enough to hold everything you leave the house with and room enough for all the day’s acquisitions.
The Sandro tote is made of 100% raffia with a sheepskin patch. It stands structured and tall with two thick handles for carrying on your shoulder. A natural beige, it is the perfect complement to any summer outfit. Here you can see it styled with a blue denim maxi skirt from Mango, a white floral knit camisole from Free People, and a comfy pair of Nike sneakers. The jean and white top combo paired with the raffia bag is reminiscent of Jane Birkin’s very well known aesthetic.
Cute & Functional
On days when your mind is clear and your path is straight and it is more about what you are doing and less about what you need to carry, a smaller, flirtier bag is just what you need. Feeling light and free, these whimsical raffia bags are hobo chic, playful, and easy to wear.
What’s even in there, huh? An extra large pool towel? Supergoop! SPF 40 Glowscreen? The ultimate poolside read? It’s gargantuan! But we don’t think it’s nonsensical to want some extra room. Here are 5 monstrous raffia bags that you could fit everything you’d need for the perfect day at the pool or at the beach.
Studio 189’s Simona raffia tote bag with rolled shoulder straps filters out all the sand while keeping your style intact. The main compartment is of generous proportion, and the tricolor hand-woven raffia commands the space it takes up. The oversized shoulder strap looks great with the black Willa Pompom sundress and Vince Camuto slingback flats in black. Polarized Ray-Bans and Kate Spade leather woven hoops really tie in the tricolor Studio 189 raffia tote.
