Now although we may be a few seasons deep since the introduction of the basket bag trend, lucky for us (because we are obsessed) it isn’t going anywhere fast. From oversized beach totes to teeny tiny cross body numbers, we are welcoming a host of handmade beauties to MyBag for SS18 and frankly we’re beside ourselves with Summer excitement.
From kitsch styles resembling actual picnic baskets to top handle woven purses, as the sun peeps its head out it’s time to admit your love for the basket bag is here to stay (just close your eyes and think Jane Birkin). For SS18 designers left right and centre have cottoned on to the go-to trend this season, and whether it be a brand dedicated to naturally grown rattan specifically for hand weaving or a halo product in the overarching SS18 collection, we’re here to preach the brands to know in the basket bag game this season.
Founded by Marcia Kemp, the brand takes its name from the Aymara word for ‘sisterhood of women’, and with a brand slogan of “creative hands transforming lives” Nannacay is inspired by Marcia’s world travels and particularly her meeting of Africa’s Maasai Tribe. After some consideration about commute, artisan weavers were sourced in Peru, and the collection now includes bags each hand woven by single Peruvian craftsmen. Foreseeing a gap in the luxury market for artisanal product, watch chic straw bags come to life with iconic hand woven pom poms cascading down their fronts at Nannacay.
