Lovingly handmade in Ecuador using toquilla straw, which takes 2-3 days to create, this cute red tote bag will add a playful pop of colour to an outfit. Pair this during the day or evening with some tight black jeans and ankle boots for understated glamour.
- Material - Toquilla straw
- Dimensions: 14cm (Height) x 25cm (Length) x 16cm (Width)
- In dry climates or when exposed to the sun, the straw dries and should therefore be humidified from time to time with a water vaporiser. When the straw dries up and is squeezed, it breaks. If the straw stains, it can be cleaned with a sponge and a neutral soap
