There’s nothing Meghan Markle wears that doesn’t leave us itching to grab our wallets, which seems to be a trend on the Internet because more often than not, her exact styles sell out almost instantly. Another trend we’ve noticed? The Duchess has been wearing Kayu, a super cute, sustainable handbag brand, on repeat.
Meghan carried her black Kayu Anna clutch on multiple occasions — once last August while attending the nuptials of Prince Harry’s friend, Charlie van Straubenzee, and again in Fiji during her royal tour. So, imagine our excitement when we found out that the brand just launched seven exclusive handbags with a few of our favorite online retailers: Net-a-Porter, Moda Operandi, and MyTheresa.
Kayu means “wood” in Malay and is an ode to how each of the brand’s handbags are crafted. Woven from the finest natural materials, like straw, wood, and shell, artists use indigenous techniques that have been passed down through generations. The bags take several days to handcraft, each one bearing the mark of the individual artist who created it. Keeping that all in mind they’re understandably a bit of a splurge, costing anywhere between $175–$300 — totally reasonable for a high-quality, handmade bag — and is definitely worth the investment for a timeless straw piece you will use summer after summer.
We expect the gorgeous vacation-ready handbags to sell out quickly, especially since they have the Meghan Markle stamp of approval. So, if you’re loving these chic styles as much as we are, we suggest scooping one up ASAP! Scroll down to see where you can buy all seven of the exclusive styles.
