The Island Girl Best Seller: Alicia Wicker Bag

The Alicia rattan crossbody speaks volumes of what our brand is all about – natural, beautiful, and functional.

Inspired by round bags seen on runways and spotted being slung across the shoulders of social media's most popular set, we worked with local weaving communities in Cebu and its neighbouring provinces to create our version of the latest bag every girl wants in her closet.

This woven boho accessory is everywhere for a reason with a number of variants you can choose from. It’s stylish, simple, and structured. The Island Girl interpretation is made out of locally grown rattan, handwoven by only the most skilled local artisans, and finished in our own factory to ensure the best quality, the Alicia is #proudlymadeinCebu.

While the design is tailored for the tropics because of its natural elements, it is versatile in matching whatever outfit you feel like putting on because of its minimalist and streamlined aesthetic.

As we are constantly in pursuit of doing something different, we love it when fashion trends push us to create fresh, new products that utilize our region’s natural materials and pieced together by local craftsmen. #supportlocal

 

The ALICIA in natural, charcoal, and brown are now available on the website. www.islandgirlph.com
