We spied this handmade Hawaiian Reef shoulder bag in Honolulu. With its brilliant images of the coral reef, it completely represents the ultimate sun, sea and sand romantic holiday destination, Hawai’i. Turtles, dolphins, butterfly fish and angel fish swim and dive around the colourful corals, creating a teeming scene of life in the warm Pacific waters.
This original image was created by a young designer in Honolulu; she and her team make the bags by hand in heavy duty pure cotton. Big enough to pop your beach towel, bikini, sunscreen, book and other beach essentials in, it would be sad to use it only for high days and holidays. Instead, bring it out to enjoy as an everyday shopper around town and to work. When your beach bag is this pretty, it is a shame not to flaunt it!
This is a favourite with the girls at CountryClubuk. Just one look transports you to the lush tropical islands of Hawai’i and the beach at Waikiki, with the ocean lapping at your feet. It has two full-length zips pocket for valuables, and each bag is reversible, with a different contrasting interior print. Made in Honolulu. Size: 41cm (16in) deep.
