The humble straw bag has become one of the must-have accessories for Summer. From relaxed oversize carry-all totes to structured box-shaped bags, it really doesn't matter as long as it's straw. They’re on women's arms across the globe providing a charming, effortlessly chic addition to any outfit. They're perfect for holding all of your summer essentials, packing a stylish beach picnic, providing stowage for your grocery shopping or to add a textured design piece as a feature in your home, just as we've done in the Villas of Byron and The Bower. We love the Dharma Door jumbo hemp string bags so much that we have them for you to use in Bower House and Bower Cottage, and after you’ve fallen in love with them too, we have them for purchase in our little Bower reception shop.
And why do we love them as we do? As well as being stylish, timeless and multi-purpose, they embrace our passion for the handmade, the bespoke creations borne from a true artisans eye, the raw and natural. And of course using a straw bag is a conscious decision to save on using the dreaded plastic bag!
Take a peek at some of our favs from fabulous Byron locals Lisa Danielle, Emily Hutchinson and Olive Cooke and other BBA regulars Tuula Vintage, Not So Mumsy, Holly from Base Colour and Andi Csinger. Then there's offerings from other brands we just love such as The Beach People, Faithful the Brand and Hendrix and Harlow. Is it possible to have too many? We think not!
