The other day in Brighton I spotted someone toting a little vintage souvenir straw bag with multicoloured flowers and the words ‘Bahamas’ on it. Obviously I’ve since been on a mission to find out more about these curious summer bags and have found a whole selection on Etsy. Here are a few cool picks to get you in the summer mood:

Jamaica, £15

Nassau, £54

Bahamas, £19

Seashells, £15

Mexico, £32

Puerto Rico, £38

Acapulco, £33

Psst. Beautiful Portuguese Basket Bags and Cool T-Shirts for Roadtrippers and Daydreamers


  1. They are still widely available around here but perhaps less so in Europe. People bring them home from Mexican or Caribbean holidays. I think perhaps they used to be more "in" some years ago. I recall having several at home back in the 70s. We threw them all out eventually. But of course from the perspective of time, they are super cute.
