We’re obsessed with this all-raffia line from Carrie Forbes. Stunning fronds, from a species of palm trees native to tropical regions of Africa, are collected, harvested, and transported to Morocco where they are weaved into stunning block heels and hand-crocheted into textural tote bags.

 Influenced by the compelling spiritual essence of the Islamic culture, Moroccos is one of the few countries remaining that practice ancient artisanal skills. The label also honors the talented indigenous artisans by naming their products after the weavers themselves.

Organic but elegant, these pieces are striking all year round but especially shine during the summer and on your next holiday. Throw one of their hand-crocheted bags and fuschia sandals in your suitcase and you’re halfway to a flawless vacation look.
