Kayu's beach-ready bag designs have been handcrafted by skilled artisans using techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. Made from woven raffia straw, this Mara tote comes in a relaxed silhouette and features luxe leather-wrapped top handles. Take it on vacation, then carry it back in the city with elegant, pared-back looks.
Kayu is a California based label founded by Jamie Lim. Jamie grew up in South East Asia surrounded by artisanal crafts. However, over the years she noticed that these traditional arts were slowly disappearing. Kayu was born out of a desire to preserve and cultivate these traditional techniques and also provide jobs to those that need it the most.
