Let’s talk basket bags.
Can we ever get enough…No! Honestly, I hope this trend does not fade, and it just silently becomes grandfathered in as a timeless piece to be added to a classic ensemble. I love the easy effortless vibes a nice straw bag can give. It’s low-maintenance while still appreciating high-maintenance craftsmanship, and I feel like the brand HersWave encompasses that exact ethos.
The company is based in Poland, and they use exclusively ethically sourced raw materials. Not only are you receiving a superb piece, bit it is also made up of materials that help maintain a balance in or ecosystem. Besides being made with all the good stuff, the pieces are gorgeous. They aren’t the same manufactured boxes coming from Urban Outfitters and Free People, even though I am guilty of owning their pieces, this brand takes the basket bag to a new level. The designs are different and expertly crafted to give those ordering the bag a piece of Europe. The shapes are innovative and unique, and the sizes vary allowing you to find a bag big enough to carry a book, or small enough to carry only a wallet and lipstick.
I love the feeling this purse invokes. It’s as if times are simple again. Pairing this with a breezy white cotton dress, a sun hat and a great book makes for the perfect finishing touch to a breezy summer afternoon. A straw bag reminds me of sun drenched days on the Mediterranean sea, and I love that the website and Instagram only enhances that feeling. You can see the thought and work that goes into these bags, as they are not perfect, it only lends a hand to that feeling of receiving a truly one of a kind of piece.
