You have probably seen round straw bags popping up everywhere on Instagram and toted by your favorite fashion bloggers, right? I first came across this one from Clare Vivier, and while I loved it right away, I couldn’t help falling for a way cheaper version from Zara (now on sale for $29.99!).
Straw bags are always a hit during Summer, and for the last couple of weeks I kept seeing these amazing sturdy round straw bags everywhere, and given that the Zara version only comes in black, I decided to check out a few that I had bookmarked and guess what, a bag that retails for $188, looks identical to a handful of options from Etsy, all made in South East Asia. A rip off? I don’t know exactly what’s going on but they look very similar, some of them come lined, and guess what? they retail for $58-$90. So, if you’re looking for a round straw bag for Summer, here are 16 options you need to see before you pull the trigger on a pricey option. Now, if you excuse me, I need to make some decisions 😉
