If we had to identify a stand-out handbag trend of 2020, it would be the woven bag. While the style is enduring and has been around in some capacity for decades, the now-iconic Bottega Veneta cassette bag brought it to the forefront once again last year. It has since been interpreted by countless designers large and small, and is now sold in some form by nearly every fashion retailer. While the aforementioned Bottega crossbody bag is characterized by exaggerated, oversized quilting, the style is incredibly versatile — woven bags are crafted from rattan, cotton, raffia, and leather and come in a variety of silhouettes, sizes, and styles.
If you’re looking to invest in the popular style, look no further than the below woven bags. Not only are these pieces perfectly on-trend, they’re sold at an affordable price point and feature practical interior organization. Below, browse the woven bags that look far more expensive than they are.
