Phone, keys, wallet, lipstick. These seem to be the standard prerequisites in nearly every woman’s purse. A successful everyday bag not only holds all of these items, but needs to meld seamlessly into your wardrobe, be practical enough to survive being used day in, day out, and stylish enough to transition from running errands to dinner. Your carryall is your go-to, the one you rely on when you need to get shit done, but much of the time it’s not one that also exemplifies your knack for style. Breathe life into your everyday essential with these offbeat bags. These handmade pieces are as ornamental as they are practical; and are as likely to turn heads as they are to help you get through your day.

Rose Bag

Handmade from Oaxaca, the Rose Bag is a one of a kind piece that’s as much a classic as it is a statement piece. The natural color makes it the perfect everyday purse to transition from day to night, while the hand-painted wood side panels give it some extra pizzazz. A curved, ergonomic wood handle is large enough to carry on your wrist or by hand, and the 9″x13″ body fits all the essentials (and some more). // Shop Now

Paragon Hammock Tote

Big enough to carry all of your essentials, think of this as an upgrade to your carryall tote. These were handmade in Cambodia and sold alongside fishermen’s nets and baskets. The braided straps support your shoulder and important goodies, and provide a pretty design element. A woven body with v-neck and diamond in the center adds just the right amount of detail to this fresh and airy bag. // Shop Now
