Get Ready for Raffia


Get Ready for Raffia

 ABLE is covering new ground in a brand new partner country - Madagascar! You may have seen our new Lina Market Tote, Elia Beach Tote and Ida Mini Pouches we launched this week, but we think you should hear the backstory...because every great bag has an even better story.

Elia Tote

 At ABLE, we partner with countries rich in natural resources, especially those that have developing economies. Madagascar, the fourth largest island in the world, just so happens to be rich in raffia palm trees, whose leaves are dried and processed to become what we know as raffia. They grow in wet tropical regions of the country and are harvested throughout the year to be prepped. This beautiful material is used frequently in woven mats, baskets, hats, and textiles. But our favorite way to use raffia? Totes.

Elia Tote - Rust

We’ve partnered with makers in Madagascar to create two beautiful different styles of totes (plus a little mini pouch!) perfect for all your summer adventures. The playful colors and textures of these styles are perfect for warm weather beach trips, farmers markets, and hillside picnics.

The Lina Market Tote screams fun - with its multi-colored ruffle outside and seamlessly lined inside, this tote introduces that pop of fun color you crave in the warm weather.

How are we styling this bold bag? Make the Lina Tote the focus of your look by pairing it with a minimal white on white outfit. An easy choice: the Karina V-Neck + The Slouch - Lucely Wash.

Tip: toss the Western Shirt in your Lina Tote to add an extra lightweight layer on a chilly beach day.

Add a pair of sand friendly sandals like the Carranza Double Knot Sandal and you're ready for a day in the sun.

Searching for the perfect finishing touch to your summer uniform? This raffia bag includes leather handles for easy carrying and an inside pocket to hold your cell phone, sunglasses or beach essentials. We've paired the Elia Tote with our favorite summer staples - The Cut Offs, Sanchez V-Neck Slouch Tank, and Joselyne Double Strap Sandals for a casual warm weather look. 

Elia Tote - Marigold

Add in the Elia Tote in Marigold to hold all of your essentials!

This tote isn't just for the beach - Take the Elia Tote with you after sundown by folding it as a sleek evening clutch.

We love pairing the Elia Tote in black with the Rosario Jumpsuit in paprika for a bold look for a night out.
