EXCLUSIVE Maureen tote in sunset


Natural / Sunset

Couture Des Iles works with local Bahamian artisans to create handbags that are rich in heritage, interpreted through a modern lens.  The art of 'plaiting' - as it is known in the Bahamas - is learnt from a young age and is passed down through generations; straw workers usually start their craft learning at the feet of their mothers and grandmothers. The intricate weaves carry names such as Bahama Mama, Sour Sop, and Peas'n'Rice. We first came across the brand while traveling in the Bahamas in 2017, and are so excited to be bringing some of these pieces to you.


  • Handwoven using natural Silver Top palm, featuring a sunset-hued trim and bamboo handles
  • Chic enough to take to brunch, practical enough for the beach
  • Lined, with an internal pocket and metal feet at base
  • 100% vegan
  • Handmade in the Bahamas

This item's measurements are:
Height 10 inches (plus 5 inch handle drop)
Width 14 inches
Depth 4 inches
Due to the handmade nature of the bags, colors and dimensions may slightly vary
