1. Carrycots/Baskets

Carrycots or baskets are handmade bags ideal for summer days at the beach, the market or for walking around the city. Its spacious design and flexible structure allow you to carry everything you need for a day outdoors, from towels and sunscreen to fresh fruit and a good read. Combine it with a beach dress, a straw hat and comfortable sandals for a relaxed, bohemian look.

2. Clutches

Clutches are elegant and compact bags that add a touch of sophistication to any summer outfit, especially on special occasions such as dinners, parties or formal events. Opt for a handmade clutch with unique details and combine it with an evening dress, a jumpsuit or a skirt and blouse set. You can carry it in your hand or use a thin strap to hang it on your shoulder. Remember that its limited size forces you to carry only the essentials, like your phone, keys and lipstick.

3. Bags

The medium-sized handmade bags are the perfect choice for everyday use during the summer. They're roomy enough to carry your essentials, like a wallet, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a small umbrella, but they're not too big or bulky. You can opt for a woven raffia bag or a wicker bag with leather handles to give it an elegant touch. Pair it with a set of shorts and a summer blouse or with a light dress for a casual and chic style.

4. Mini bags

Handmade mini bags are a popular trend that adds a touch of charm and originality to your summer outfits. Although their size is small, they are perfect for carrying just the essentials, like your phone, keys, wallet and a lipstick. These bags are ideal for casual outings during the day, such as walks around the city or coffees with friends. You can wear them across your body or over your shoulder to keep your hands free. Combine them with skinny jeans, a white t-shirt and sneakers for a modern and youthful look.

2. Versatile and functional bags for different occasions, from the beach to an elegant dinner

Versatility is one of the most appreciated qualities of handmade bags. A well-chosen bag can accompany you from a relaxed day on the beach to an elegant dinner. Discover the designs and styles that suit different occasions and how to easily transition from one event to another without losing style.

When preparing for an exciting summer trip, it is crucial to choose a Zahati bag that is versatile and functional to adapt to different situations and activities:

  • A versatile bag will allow you to easily go from exploring the city during the day to enjoying dinner at a local restaurant at night.
  • Make sure the bag has enough compartments and pockets to keep your belongings organized and accessible.
  • Opt for a medium-sized bag, such as a handmade raffia or wicker bag with leather handles, that is roomy enough to carry your essentials, but not too large or bulky so as not to be uncomfortable to carry during your adventures.
  • Also, look for a bag with an adjustable strap so you can carry it across your body, which will provide comfort and security when moving in crowded places or while doing outdoor activities.

When choosing a summer bag to take on a trip, the key is finding the perfect balance between style, functionality and comfort to ensure you're prepared for whatever adventure your trip throws at you.
