Raffia makes its perennial return this season—and we’re still loving it. This season, designers are incorporating raffia well beyond totes and basket bags.  We’ve pulled together our top 12 bags of the season that will have you channeling big vacay energy no matter where you are. After all, everything looks a little more vibey when made from palm leaves!

Artisans in Madagascar and Milan each spend eight hours meticulously crafting each of the “Summer Tricks” charms that are designed to lend an individual touch to Prada’s line of summer bags—which the brand refers to as “crochet,” not raffia, because of the finely tuned nature of each design.
