Mini, micro, and baby – no matter what you call them, teeny weeny bags are the It-accessories of the summer. When life revolves around a palm-sized smartphone, what more do you really need to carry? Edit out all the clutter at the bottom of your bag (gum wrappers, receipts and empty Chapstick tubes have got to go) and downsize to a mini that is just too cute to resist. Especially when they’re the shrunken down versions of our favourite designer bags.

Inspired by the indigenous craftsmanship of their Filipino heritage, Becky Aranáz and her two daughters founded their own handbag label nearly 18 years ago. Aranáz quickly became covetable by Manila’s chic fashion set but it wasn’t until recently that their whimsical and colorful straw bags started receiving an international following. It’s no wonder. Toucans, flamingos and tropical fruits are so intricately embroidered onto totes, which are finished with the right amount of flair via pom poms, fringe and tassels. Obviously, I’m in love. And clearly, they know their market well . . .
My obsession with straw bags has evolved over the last year. First, it was simple straw satchels. Then, it was souvenir straw totes, And now, wicker box bags with lucite details have consumed me! This post is actually a cry for help as I’ve fallen down a deep rabbit hole, scouring the web for these vintage treasures and feeling the need to have them all. I just love how the lucite and bakelite elevates an otherwise simple woven bag. And you can actually find most of them in mint condition for no more than $60! Check out my favorites below and please, snatch them up before I do.
