When I find raffia bags with unique designs like this, no doubt I get them straight away, because it's rare to find them and they are something beautiful with a long tradition of craftsmanship behind.
This is a gorgeous black raffia bag handmade in Florence, Tuscany, by Catarzi a family that makes hats and bags since 1910. It's embellished with a handle in real Bamboo that is long enough to be worn also on the shoulder. Catarzi is one of the customers' favorite brands at our boutique, still completely handmade by Italian ladies. It's great also for traveling as you can easily fold it in your luggage. The material used for the bag is viscose raffia which, compared to the natural raffia, is easy to mantain and clean and long lasting.
