Summer Style? It’s in the Bag.
Blending style with purpose, these sweet summer bags help us keep it all together and make an impact at the same time.
Lush & Luxurious
Each purchase of a gorgeous and whimsical Paula Coles bag (from $100) supports the education of a child in Haiti. What's more, these haute pieces are made of recycled scraps from Haitian t-shirt factories, reducing their impact and creating something beautiful in the process.
Hip & Happy
Every product sold through Austin-based fair trade boutique Purse & Clutch must embody three things: happy artisans, current styles and affordable prices. Made of organic fabrics, P&C's current clutches and purses are on trend and affordable enough (all under $70) to splurge on several this summer.
Boho & Beautiful
Perfect for schlepping your stuff in style to the shore (say that ten times fast!), the weekender series from The Ashe Collection ($300) offers four beachy, bountiful bags handstitched from Indian boat sails. Featuring your choice of a heart, evil eye, star or "LOVE" typography, each bag is hand-painted by gifted artisan Ali Lamu.
