Wicker bags were never just a passing trend that only appeared in recent times. The legendary Jane Birkin, for one, carried hers everywhere back in the 1960s, a woven basket bag that fit just about everything she needed as she went about in the day. What’s interesting, however, are the recent creations by luxury designer houses that incorporate wicker into their signature leather bag silhouettes.
It may look simple, and given that wicker as a material in itself isn’t exactly costly, it shouldn’t be too expensive, right? Wrong. The amount of laborious craftsmanship (from bending the wicker to weaving it into shape before the leather parts are attached) that goes into each and every piece is way higher than an average leather bag, which also translates into a much higher price. A limited production vanity case that is perfect for day or evening.
