Once the weather starts heating up, I love swapping out my heavier leather bags for lightweight summer styles. Bags made from raffia, straw or wicker are not only easy to carry and made from natural fibers, but they match all your outfits. Large totes are the perfect accessory for a day at the beach or a trip to the farmer’s market. Small crossbody styles are ideal for an evening stroll through town or for a cocktail party when it’s best to be hands-free. Below are my top 10 pics for natural fiber bags in all price points which will update your look this spring and summer.
