Yes! Straw bags are still in for summer 2019 and the basket bag trend is just gorgeous. The Bamboo handbag has been around for quite some time now as you already know. It is thanks to fashion influencers like Stella Uzo of Jadore Fashion Blog who have made the bag trendy. However, before brands like Cult GAIA made the brown Ark bamboo clutch bag mainstream, bamboo bags existed in African homes. These bags were mostly hand woven and sold in some African countries like Cameroon at very cheap prices.
Today, with social media and the rise of fashion brands, many contemporary labels have plugged their inspiration from African fashion. These are particularly those African products and designs that never made it mainstream. A prime example is indeed the bamboo bag that is available from different brands in White and mostly Ark brown. They also come in small, medium and large sizes. Again, the bags range in prices from £9 to over £160 depending on the brand. Farfetch currently stocks the bags from Cult Gaia with the small bamboo clutch bag selling at £160. Far from the deep pocket price point by Cult, Nasty Girl retails a similar copy at £22.50. Did I mention YSL has the Saint Laurent Women’s Kate Small Bamboo Chain Bag in Brown selling at $3,990?
