We’re sure you’ll agree: this traditional basket bag from Loewe evokes such strong connotations of summer – from the ocean breeze to the sun-scorched sand. But did you know this Anagram-stamped style is, in fact, crafted from iraca palm, which is cultivated, harvested, and sun-dried in Colombia, where it’s then handwoven by women artisans from Corporación Oficio y Arte, an organisation guided by fair trade principles? Consider us impressed.
For more than 150 years Loewe specialised in leather and silk. While still renowned for its expertly crafted leather goods, including its now-iconic origami-inspired puzzle fold bags, the range has grown to include a wide range of innovative luxury accessories and ready-to-wear collections that have captured the zeitgeist.
