Echo Rounded Raffia Tote | Kitsch Woven Summer Handbag

Posted on: Aug 25

If you're not quite ready to say goodbye to summer, feast your eyes on this fun Rounded Raffia Tote from Echo.

This quirky purse reminds me of the kind of souvenir you'd take home from a Polynesian vacation. It might not be handcrafted by Fijian locals, but its woven raffia body could fool your friends.

This kitschy accessory will never be the height of fashion, but I love the way the shape of the circular handles is mirrored in the curved lines of the two-toned body. I also love the vibrant color combination of natural toned raffia and bright sky blue, but it's also available in black and java brown for the traditionalists.

The interior is fully lined and spacious, although I wouldn't fill it with too many heavy items if you want the brittle raffia body to last. The open top design is also a bit of a security risk, especially without a platform base to keep the bag upright once it's set down. But at least the style makes it easy to access what's inside.

Really this bag is all about the look, and it delivers that for a relatively affordable $48. It may not get much use during winter, but if you treat it right it'll be as good as new once warmer weather rolls around.
