The Market Tote

A few months ago “The Market Tote” by Bamboula Ltd. caught my eye on The Madewell web-site. Bamboula Ltd. features bags hand-woven by women in rural Kenya.While I couldn’t commit to the $60 price tag on this black and white beauty I started to fantasize about carrying around groceries and paperback books in a straw bag hanging just so off my shoulder. Luckily I spotted these varied bags at the Studio City sale! Cheaper than the modern version these bags are perfect year round in Los Angeles.

I love a bright complicated necklace with a simple bag
