The Design

The St. Tropez

Inspiration

Our St. Tropez tote is our number one seller and was first designed in 2013. The inspiration for this woven tote was derived from the bright colors and patterns of the French Riviera.

Materials

Our St Tropez tote is made of of seagrass, locally known as bangkuang, which is harvested from low-lying areas in the Philippines. Traditionally known as a weed, this fast growing grass has now been repurposed. The seagrass is harvested and dried in the sun which turns the fibers from green to beige. The dried strips are then woven by hand over a wooden mold to give it it’s shape. Each bag takes many days to make and is made entirely by hand using basket weaving techniques that have been a Filipino tradition for thousands of years.
