With springtime comes fun colours and the realisation that nature is beautiful, resilient, and worth our every effort to protect. While we get our fashion game ready for the warmer weather ahead, let’s also make sure our accessories are up to our standards of sustainability.
Here are eight stylish and sustainable accessories to wear this spring:
The Little Market: Rattan Bucket Bag
A rattan bag screams spring like nothing else! Handwoven in Cambodia, this quaint bucket bag from The Little Market takes two artisans approximately 20 hours to weave while the brand ensures the organic, raw materials are harvested sustainably.

Pangaia: Nylon Padded Backpack
It’s time to find a durable and sustainable backpack for those weekends outdoors. Pangaia makes this backpack from a specially formulated nylon that breaks down in just a few years’ time when disposed in controlled landfills. We love the pretty-in-pink minimal design!
