Designer: Couture Des Iles
EXCLUSIVE Virginia bag
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.
- The Virginia bag packs a lot of personality in its delicate round shape - the perfect accessory for beach or brunch!
- Made of Silver Top palm, featuring intricate woven details
- 100% vegan
- Handwoven in Current Island, a small island in the Bahamas
