Summer is right around the corner, which brings some of my favourite things, like warmer weather, longer days, and travelling. Whether you’re relaxing at the beach, heading somewhere exotic, or planning a staycation at home, it’s a time of year that calls for new adventures.
And what better to take on your next adventure than a bright, colourful bag? At The Little Market, we just got in new handwoven bags made by women in Guatemala. My friend Hannah (co-founder of The Little Market) and I fell in love with these bags because of their bright colours and unique designs. Each one is handwoven, so no two bags are alike!

At The Little Market, we work to build sustainable partnerships with artisans all around the world by connecting them with customers through an online marketplace. Every purchase of these woven products translates into steady income and opportunities for the female artisans in Guatemala.
The Little Market Woven Bikini Eva Bag ($40)
These bikini bags are definitely one of my favourite new items that we’re carrying at The Little Market! Each one is so striking, unlike any other bag you’ll see around. The plastic lining makes them perfect to transport a wet bikini after a long day at the beach. Or you can throw some toiletries in it for your weekend getaway.
The Little Market Woven Cosmetic Reina Bag ($40)
The cosmetic bag is perfect for makeup and other essentials. It’s such a fun way to store some of the items you use every day. And the quality of the weave makes these bags especially durable and beautiful.

The Little Market Carla Envelope Clutch ($48)
The clutch is great because it’s so versatile: It can complete any casual daytime outfit, but it can also easily transition for a more sophisticated look for a dinner date or girls’ night out. For those of you who love to travel with your tech gadgets, the small envelope clutch also doubles as an iPad case.
