HANDMADE FROM 100% RECYCLED PLASTIC
Our Lolita, Beatriz and Cheche woven beach bags and pouches are handmade by talented artisans in Mexico from 100% recycled plastic. Each bag is woven using a clever technique and takes up to 8 hours to make. We've been lucky enough to discover and work with these brilliant artisans to design and create a collection using modern designs and the brightest colours imaginable. Each bag is lovingly handmade especially for Soi 55 and helps artisans in Oaxaca to support their families.
HANDWOVEN ON THE ISLAND OF THE GODS IN INDONESIA
The Soi 55 rattan bags have been carefully handmade in Bali and Java using traditional techniques. Woven from 'Ata' grass which has been cooked over coconut husks to give it its deep colour. Our Rattan roundies have been lined with traditional and colourful batik print fabric that has been hand picked for Soi 55 from the local markets on the island. We work directly with the local people of Bali to create small batches of each style to ensure there is little to no waste.
HANDWOVEN IN NORTHERN PORTUGAL WITH A STORY
Living in Portugal has enabled us to make connections with some extra special basket makers. Portuguese baskets are woven from local ceira reed using a technique that has been passed down through generations. The reed is naturally strong and has a beautiful texture and smell that is unique to Portugal. Each and every bag has been handmade especially for Soi 55 and is a piece of art to treasure.
