In this blog post, we are excited to share the inspiration behind one of our cherished designs—the Jasmine Raffia Tote.

An homage to the treasured memories of Greek summers, where translucent waters glisten under the August sun and the fragrances of nature infuse the air with their essence, the Jasmine Raffia Tote embodies the delicate charm of the jasmine blossom and the sparkling waters of the Aegean sea.

Comprising 36 meticulously crocheted flowers by our skilled artisans in Greece and intricately connected by hand, the Jasmine Raffia Tote showcases the dedication and craftsmanship that go into creating such a delicate piece.

Drawing from the symbolism of the jasmine blossom, a representation of beauty and sensuality in Ancient Greece, the design reflects the essence of simplicity and sophistication, which we celebrate in all our creations. This mindful approach to design extends to the tote's handles. Influenced by ancient jewelry discovered in the Cyclades, the decorative pattern of the handles adds a timeless dimension to the bag's aesthetic.

To capture the iridescence of the sparkling waters of the Aegean Sea, the Jasmine Tote is meticulously handcrafted using 100% biodegradable viscose raffia in an exquisite opalescent ivory shade. This careful selection of materials and colors not only enhances the tote's individuality but also underscores our dedication to environmentally responsible craftsmanship.

The Jasmine Tote evokes moments: a serene swim in the clear, refreshing waters of a secluded Greek beach, peaceful observations of the dancing light on the water's surface, a stroll along narrow streets, while the enticing aroma of jasmine blossoms fills the warm air, leaving a sense of pure bliss and tranquility

Let it accompany you on your own journey, transforming into a vessel of cherished memories. Make it yours and carry a piece of Greek summer with you wherever you go.
