Whether we are going to a resort or the beach, we want a beach bag that fits our whole day of fun in the sun looking chic.

We’ve always been a huge fan of Mar y Sol beach bags as they are all handmade in Madagascar, eco-friendly and offers a creative take on the usual classic beach bag.

The sale of their products enables families to gain economic independence, preserves traditional craft and promotes environmental conservation. They maintain their commitment by using organically tanned leathers and creative use of sustainable materials.

Our current crush is one of their newest styles, Valencia ($119; shopmarysol.com). It’s been featured in InStyle, Coastal Living and Life & style. It’s a classic best seller that is hand crocheted of a shell-like pattern with organically tanned leather handles that is comfortable to wear on the shoulders. We love the natural color shown in the photos as you can wear it with anything, but a pop of color is fun too!


It’s very roomy and you will never need to hold anything else in your hand because it truly fits everything, plus more. We recommend this when jet setting as you can fold it up without the bulkiness. Or better yet, use this bag as a carry on and look beach chic…
