Straw market bag PRICKLY PEARS Sicily

The joyous laves and flowers of handpainted prickly pear decorates this happy straw bag, the word ‘Sicily’ beckons.  The only question one may have once she wears this gorgeous straw shopper is: ‘How many good things can I carry with it from the farmer’s market?’ 100% hand-made, and hand-decorated  in Italy with Amore!

To straw or not to straw? To straw! Of course… 

The  timeless charm of handwoven straw accessories and artifacts strikes deep chords in many of us. Possessing something beautiful, that human hands have crafted from natural raw plant-fibres, is not only refreshing in our consumer mass-machine-production era, it is endearingly enriching. The straw  market bag  PRICKLY  PEAR by Italian Summers is a true work of beauty.  To know that such an item is a one-of-a-kind, unique and unrepeatable, is perhaps a true luxury beyond the fact that its relative price may be considered irrelevant, when compared to other purchaseables (which exist in the millions as they are stamped out industrially!).

Additional information:

  • Our raw, unfinished straw bags are handmade by artisans in Morocco and Spain, this implies that each item is inspected personally by us before they are decorated and finished by us in Italy. Every piece is unique as there are no two alike.
  • Please keep in mind that all of these straw bags may have their slight ‘blemishes’  as part of their organic nature, which really is their true charm.
  • The straw bags present a distinctive ‘overlap’ finishing braid on the top rim. This is part of the weaving technique.
  •  As we pack and ship our bags in the best manner possible, some may arrive slightly out of shape. This is easy to fix. Simply spray the bag slightly with water in a spraybottle and reshape it gently as the fibres soften up.
