Carrying heavy leather tote bags in the summer isn’t ideal, so when I started the search for a lightweight summer alternative I looked to straw market bags. Versatile in their simplicity; carry it in the summer to tote vegetables at the farmer’s market or towels to the beach. During the colder months, use it as storage in your home for newspapers or blankets. Whether you go for a more structured style like this one by Dosa at La Garconne (pictured above) or opt for a more traditional Moroccan straw market bag from Amazon, you will find endless uses for this bag. Here are my favorites, all priced well under $100.
