We are going back to the roots with this one! The year is almost halfway over and already we’ve been enjoying the fashion trends it’s been steady dishing out; one of which is the African straw bag also referred to as the wicker bag or the cane bag.
This African straw bag, which originated from Africa and dates back many generations, is typically made from willow and pliable twigs, woven and plaited into different shapes and sizes, and designed in such a way that it can be used for different occasions. Historically, people from the coastal regions of Africa use willows and twigs to create everyday fashion and household goods like sandals, hats and mats.
Like many fashion trends which recycle themselves, straw bags are what bloggers can’t seem to do without right now. Style influencers like Asiyami Gold, Kehinde Smith, Kiitan A, Dimma Umeh, Joy Kendi and Silvia Njoki are among key influencers who have been seen rocking the straw bag even before it became such a huge thing this year.
