Raffia Accessories: Yay or Nay?

By now you all must be familiar with the Bottega Veneta raffia mules that are being worn by our favourite Instagram influencers and fashionistas. We had our reservations when we started seeing Raffia accessories popping up a lot on our feeds but truth be told, they’ve grown on us. They certainly bring a more earthy and natural vibe to an outfit.

Paired with the right clothes, they look rather chic too. We’ve selected some hot raffia accessories for you to shop and join the bandwagon!

Let’s start with a bold piece – many of you are familiar with and love the Dolce & Gabbana Devotion series. It just got a raffia-update and it’s a true headturner. This vibrant pink bag is made from raffia, trimmed with leather and has the iconic Dolce & Gabbana Devotion clasp along with brass hardware that contrasts with the pink so well. It’s one of those pieces that works great with a monochrome dress. We suggest an add to cart!


Another great addition are these Valentino Garavani slides that have the “Go Logo” plaque resting on a woven strap of raffia. They are the perfect neutral shade that can be worn with your summer dresses and even a casual pair of jeans and T. We love!


What a sight for sore eyes these Bottega mules are! The lilac color is oh-so-soothing and the signature intrecciato weave the brand is known for has been recreated in raffia for an elevated summer look! We think these shoes are worth investing in. They are instantly recognizable as Bottega’s, they look so chic & they are edgy and new. Show the world your palette consists of all kinds of fashionable pieces – including this star.

We’re excited to show you many more pieces that will add a great flair to your summer looks. Just scroll below and see the rest of the collection. We suggest getting a good raffia number this season before the trend is everywhere and you’re late to the party. Yikes!
Happy shopping!
