When you think of the perfect accessory to pick for the summer, one instantly visualises basket bags. And what’s not to love about it? A basket bag is versatile, amps up your style quotient, and more importantly, it’s sustainable and is an ode to craftsmanship. If you’re looking for a basket bag that will be the perfect arm candy for you this summer, look no further and take notes of our favourites sustainable picks:

LOEWE Anagram Basket Bag
The new Loewe X Paula Ibiza capsule is filled with tropical knitted and straw accessories, but for us, the standout piece is certainly the latest Anagram basket bag. With Loewe’s signature logo stitched on fibres from Iraca palm and the rest of the bag dyed with walnut tree leaves, the Anagram Basket bag is a nod to eco-friendly fashion. What's more? It uplifts the crafts community as it's hand-woven by the craftswomen of Oficio y Arte, a Spanish artisanal collective making woman financially independent, which in turn helps educate their children.
