Yes, ladies, this is apparently now a thing. And while I don’t exactly know when and where it started, it does look like it will be here to stay for a while. Yes, I’m talking about straw baskets and bags, which can take most any form, so long as it is made up of straw, cane, even something really new age-y like bamboo fibres. Already spotted lovingly cradled in the arms of most everyone on Instagram, there is time for you yet. Take, for example, this range of miniature picnic baskets from Piki.
Measuring some 23 cm by 15 cm by 15 cm, you’ll have to pick the one in Natural in order to obtain full credits when it comes to your street cred, or you could just pick any of the other adorable colours that could be used to a) store cosmetics and makeup, b) hold trinkets or c) be passed on to the young ones once you get bored or when the trend passes, whichever comes faster.
Priced at SGD65.90, you can pre-order them via Oh Happy Fry now. Or Google ‘hipster woven baskets that come with a sling’ and see what the Internet can offer. Do it fast though, because you don’t want to be the 127th person on your feed to have one.
