A Good Straw Bag Is Like a Needle in a Haystack…


…almost impossible to find, and very sharp (looking). Why opt for plain old seen-it-everywhere golden straw when you can choose from so many fun candy-colored options?

Mad Imports works with artisans from Madagascar and Kenya to create this line of handmade accessories.  Each piece is made using renewable natural fibers and textiles native to these exotic regions. Handmade from braided raffia with a wood button/loop closure, you’ll fit everything (and the kitchen sink) in this durable bag. Make a statement carrying what you need and feel good about the cause you’re supporting.


Mad Imports is a fair trade company that enables women to earn fair compensation for their talent and work. And Nest (the fabulous website where you can purchase these totes) is helping these women apply for micro-loans to grow their businesses. Was $70, now just $52.50!
