They’ve always been beach trip and vacation staples, but as of late, handwoven bags have reached bag-du-jour status. There’s no denying, too, that the covetable wardrobe essential has become a favorite among Rockwell folk.

One handwoven bag that’s having a moment:

The Rockwellist Tote

More than having the look of a statement bag, this collaboration between ARANÁZ, Rags2Riches and Power Plant Mall makes a statement. Made from natural jute and repurposed mall banners, handcrafted by local artisan communities, The Rockwellist Tote walks the talk of sustainable fashion. 


The stylish tote’s ripple effect extends to our shopping wish lists. With something this classic and inspiring in sight, it’s hard not to shop for gorgeous pieces that go well with it. Below, a few of our favorites:

Elevate this everyday tote with bold accessories like these locally handcrafted earrings and linen and leather knot necklaces from designer Bea Valdes.

Style it with a French Linen Coat or Bolero to show how the woven bag can translate to wardrobe for cooler weather just as well as it does for spring and summer.

Tiny sunglasses, big impact. Especially if you pair them with a bag that elicits a beach trip state of mind.

Nothing exudes parisienne je ne sais quoi like classic white sneakers with your woven, upcycled tote.
