There’s no denying the versatility of the humble straw bag — the neutral hues work with any outfit and for any occasion, whether it’s going for a workout or Sunday brunch with your favourite pals.

Even the legendary woman that inspired Hermès’ Birkin bags – Jane Birkin – was famously known for carrying a wicker bag everywhere she went in the 1970s. 

Of course, we understand that everyone’s taste is different, so, we’ve curated a thorough list of straw and raffia bags that come in various shapes, sizes and colours to suit your needs. Here’s our guide to the best in show.
