My love for straw summer bags has grown tremendously over the past few years. It all started with a market bag from MANGO similar to this one and grew into a small but mighty collection of totes, basket bags, and clutches that I feel genuinely excited to bring back when the weather warms up!
If you’ve never carried a straw bag beyond the beach, this post might convince you. Brands have given them elegant upgrades in recent years, and the latest designs make great companions for everything from park picnics to summer date nights.
