I associate fabrics with seasons; I am loathe to wear or carry suede in anything other than the dead of winter, and will only use straw or canvas in warmer weather. Of course I can ONLY wear linen in summer, even though in Texas linen is a three-season fabric.
Do you have this problem?? Do you switch your bag every summer to something straw or canvas? Is this a “thing” for you too??
I’ll be switching over to my James Perse mini canvas tote again starting Memorial Day (mostly because I’m bringing it with me to Florida) and will probably carry it all summer. It’s so good…
More canvas & straw totes I love (I try to find bags that don’t use any leather at all – one of the reasons I love the JP totes so much – but that is REALLY hard to do):
1 James Perse mini canvas tote | $195 (highly highly highly recommend!)
2 Epice canvas and mesh pouch* | $48
3 Agnes Badoo canvas/leather (buffalo) tote | $425 (love this so much…)
4 Star Mela embroidered tote | $100
5 Baggu mesh tote | $14 (I have this one and use it at the beach/lake/pool)
6 Pari Desai circular tote | $195
7 Someware tote | $88
8 Erin Templeton grocery tote | $70
Of course there are no shortage of sisal/straw market bags on etsy…
What do you think? Do you switch out your bag for summer?
