The vacationing season and those R&R days call for tote bags that are maintenance free and that wont make you cringe if you get some water splashing on it. Canvas and PVC pieces always make great alternative to your more expensive treasures, but straw totes always seem to fit the theme to the best extent. Surprisingly, straw totes vary through design. Take for example the strong geometric patterns of the Panama Stripe Straw Tote by Mar y Sol.
The cool strong structure creates a lovely design that is sun safe as well as fashionable enough to wear to summer indoor events. These radiant stripes arrive in four fun shades of Aqua, Coral, Espresso and Sunflower; which contrast wonderfully with the natural straw that makes up most of the tote. The cool squared design is actually handcrafted by the original technique of hand weaving from the island of Madagascar; hence the origin of bag. Mar y Sol completes this piece with a great choice of smooth leather handles that suits the sunny tote, wonderfully. It provides a more comfortable and presentable choice to your typical all-straw handbag.
This attractive piece is large enough to fit a large towel, a change of clothes and is available for only $98 through: Mar Y Sol Boutique at Nordstrom
