Danielle's Candy Wrapper Tote

$210.00

An oversized tote bag with heavy twinkle-factor, perfect for grocery runs, beach days and flea markets.

Handwoven in Kenya from leftover candy wrappers and finished in Los Angeles with 100% cotton rope straps.

The tight chain link weave gives it a structured feeling, like your own personal shopping basket, but soft and flexible to fit everything and then some. The straps thread beneath to support the bottom of the bag, and all of your shopping desires!

The first time she experienced a bag with handles thread beneath was at a food market in Uganda. 'A shelf formed when the goods went inside and because the weight was so wonderfully balanced, the straps were able to support the bottom of the bag—and all of my shopping desires!'

Danielle's Energy

How would her mom, Marie-France, describe her? If you asked Danielle she thinks it'd be something like this (in a French accent): 'You should meet my daughter. She is a very famous photographer and director and is friends with Rick Owens, she has lots of pages on Google and won an Emmy.'
