Is there such a thing as an ‘investment’ straw bag?
The search for the perfect basket bag was an on going quest for me. It needs to be the perfect shape, colour, comfortable handles, the right size, sturdy weave, rustic but not too much so if you get my drift.
Back in January this was in my New Years resolution on how to be devastatingly stylish. Post here ( will be reviewing my resolutions shortly – stay tuned. how are you getting on with yours?)
Being devastatingly stylish takes a lot of god damn work, though it needs to look easy and effortless. Just like this perfect basket. Simple, no obvious branding, yet meticulously designed. It comes with an origami style inner pouch to keep our belongings safe, as well as a long shoulder strap, in case we need to go hands free! Genius I tell you. The LSH (long suffering husband) rolled his eyes.
Finally the perfect straw bag! I have waited patiently for its launch. From Muuñ, who combine Ghanaian craft with Parisian design and Japanese influences. Local artisans in Ghana weave the handbags in the small village of Nyariga, subsequently send to the labels Paris atelier for the Parisian finishing touches. Sounds like my sort of thing…
What do you think, is this the ONE perfect straw bag?
I very rarely post shopping links, but I had to share this with you.
