Solana Bag

Color: Black

A dreamy summer tote handwoven in elephant grass using centuries-old weaving traditions from Ghana. Inspired by Jane Birkin’s iconic basket tote and made modern with two leather straps and an interior leather pocket. It’s perfect by the sea, but the leather detailing makes it appropriate for the city. Wear it all summer long with your favorite denim and a stacked heel sandal.

Each Solana bag is made entirely by hand and has a unique, organic shape.
