Best Straw, Wicker, Raffia Tote Bags

Now that Spring is officially here and Summer is quickly approaching, I have been gathering a list of the best straw bags and totes to add to your collection. We have been seeing this trend of wicker and rattan accessories emerging for a few years now, and I think it is here to stay! Keep reading to see why you need one and a list of some of my current favorites.

Why You Should Own a Straw Bag

Straw bags come in a wide variety of styles from beach bags to clutches.  You can carry this trend that never goes out of style with you wherever you find yourself this Spring or Summer. Take a large straw tote, for example. Bring it with you for a day at the pool, the Farmer’s Market, or use it as a laptop bag to the office or coffee shop.  A rattan clutch or basket bag would be the perfect accessory dressed up for date night or dressed down in a casual outfit for daytime. The tones of the natural fibers allow them to be paired with any color outfit, making them the perfect neutral accessory for Spring and Summer.

Best Places to Shop

I am loving Pamela Munson! This brand is devoted to straw accessories and offers an amazing collection of products. Her natural fiber bags have the sweetest feminine details such as hand stitching, pearls, and beautiful ribbon accessories. I personally own a few of her bags like this one. Pamela just sent me her signature basket bag with grosgrain and eyelet handles.  I’ve also been eyeing this bucket style bag with eyelet details for my collection.

A brand that has mastered the wicker trend especially is J. McLaughlin. They have stunning handbags in so many different varieties. Many of them incorporate wicker with leather or bamboo which is a fun twist on a plain straw bag! These bags are classics and never go out of style.

If you like to personalize your bag with a monogram, Mark and Graham is the place to go. They have a variety of fun options that are under $150. If you want to know which one I would pick, this one is it.

J. Crew has so many options currently for straw and rattan bags from totes, clutches, and small camera bags. So many of these woven pieces could be taken anywhere. This Jolene rattan-inspired bag would be perfect for church and then on another day to the beach!

Some other places I’m loving to shop for straw bags these days are Tuckernuck, Lilly Pulitzer, and Nordstrom!

5 Straw Bags to Add to Your Collection
