Ideal for essential errands, city jaunts and backyard picnics, bags made of straw, raffia and other plant-based materials are accessories that we can’t seem to get enough of.

(Some even style their straw bags for fall and winter by using accessories such as scarves in autumn colours or by pairing them with outfits in monochromatic colour schemes.)
This coming spring, expect textured bags to make a positive impression once again for the retail trade. Here are some of the woven inspirations presented at Spring/Summer 2021 runway shows.
