When I think of handbags that are composed of natural materials, I normally think of those chunky straw beach totes. You remember those, right? I think they were pretty popular a few years ago. Well guess what ladies! Natural materials are making a comeback for Spring/Summer 2010! But these new accessories are far from the stereotypical straw tote. In fact, they are like nothing you have ever seen before! Think organic accents, unexpected materials, and reinvented straw. Be prepared to throw all of your old ideas about natural materials out the window because these handbags are anything but ordinary. Below you will find some of my favorite pieces from this new organic elements trend. And the best part? These definitely aren’t beach bags!
