As I write this, the sun is just starting to make its way into my office windows, which are thrown wide open to let in the sounds of birds and rustling leaves. Yesterday, it was 80 degrees here, and I know many parts of the country are starting to see summertime temps.
There are so many things I love about summer: open windows (I thankfully don’t have air-conditioning!), bare feet, thunderstorms, colorful flowers, sunny afternoons, music festivals, and easy summer fashion.
When the weather turns warm, I know I’m not the only one who feels relaxed and easy. And, I always change out my winter bag for a large hippy boho-bag that’s perfect for slinging over my shoulders. I wanted to highlight a few of my favorites that I think are perfect fair trade summer bags: they’re colorful, relaxed, and boho-style.
Our fair trade Peace and Love Young and Fun bag is perfect for summer music festivals and lazy afternoons with friends. This boho bucket bag is incredibly soft, and it can hold a lot, which is kind of a necessity when you’re at a festival. You need sunblock, wallet, phone, sunglasses, as well as a sleeve or even a scarf to ward off the night chill.
Of course, you might not want to carry a ton of stuff. If this is you, then you might be better off with one of our fair trade Passport bags. I love this one particularly, because it’s so very Southwest style, which hothothot right now.
Our Recycled Wrapper Bags are also perfect for summer because not only are they eco-friendly, but they’re extremely colorful and fun.
If you’re looking for a hobo that’s a bit more low-key, our Blue Strip Hobo fits the bill perfectly. This fair trade bag is incredibly soft, and richly colored.
Personally, I’m going to be toting my 1980s-inspired Rocker Bag around this summer. I have a serious love-affair with this bag because it’s punky and edgy, and holds a lot. I’ll be taking it along with me to Detroit’s Movement Festival, a 3-day dance festival taking place over Memorial Day weekend. It’s definitely a perfect festival bag!
