Bags, Totes, & Clutches
From woven Pandanus (lauhala) from Fiji and Tahiti to old-world climbing palm bags from Indonesia, each island and its artists carry their culture and traditions with them. Our wide selection of bags showcases the intricacies of each country. Bags are handcrafted by artisans, so no two are alike. Designs are unique and make each piece special.
Made in Fiji
Each Fiji bag is woven with Pandanus leaves, or voi voi in the Fijian language. They are a beautiful cream color, with black and brown accents, making these rare bags perfect for a day at the beach or a night on the town.
Made in Fiji - Rise Beyond the Reef
Rise Beyond the Reef is a non-profit craft collective of women artists. Their bold tribal designs are carefully hand printed onto sturdy canvas purses, clutches and totes. Minor variations and imperfections from the hand printing are part of the charm of having something made just for you by hand.
Made in Indonesia
Ate Vine Bags - Ate (pronounced ah-tay) vine bags are purses made of vine fibers. Ate vine bags have been treated with smoke, which brings out the oils of the fibers to give the bags a glossy finish, as well as to repel insects. These purses are exceptionally tightly woven and sturdy, and will keep their shape and last for years. Come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Lauhala Shopping Tote - These beautiful lauhala bags are fashioned from tightly woven pandanus leaves. Choose between woven lauhala handles or sturdy leather handles sewn onto the bag. Handles are long enough to comfortably hang over your shoulder, or to grasp in your hand at your side. There are three sizes: small, medium, and large.
Hawaii Printed Bags
Bags and purses that say "Hawaii" will always get attention and never go out of style--and make great gifts. The large brown canvas bag with big soft rope handles, long wallet, manicure kit, clutch and coin purse feature island words and symbols and multicolored hibiscus blossom designs, the timeless Hawaiian symbol. (And the state flower!) All are fabric-lined. The pineapple backpack sports a bold pineapple image and the names of the eight main Hawaiian islands.
Made in Marshall Islands
Marshallese handicrafts are renowned in international craft circles for their intricacy, uniqueness, and style. Bags are woven with dark and light Pandanus leaves using a variety of surface weaving techniques or made from young coconut leaves to make the signature Kili bags, made popular by Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
Made in Solomon Islands
Pandanus leaves from the Solomon Islands are tightly woven into these cream-colored, exclusive shoulder bags. Varying traditional designs decorate each unique shoulder bag. All Solomon Islands weavers use natural or artificial dyes to create a variety of designs and colors to embellish these bags. These bags are especially sturdy and strong.
