Teresa Round Tote in Nude/Natural
The Teresa Round Tote is part of the FORMÁ Ltd. Series, a collection of molded bags featuring natural materials and genuine leather. A statement accessory, this circular tote bag has top handles and a detachable shoulder sling. It's composed of a solihiya front and a leather back, and has a full zip closure and interior pocket.
This piece uses thin strands of rattan handwoven into sunburst patterns, known as solihiya in the Philippines. Typically used for making baskets and furniture, this naturally sustainable material is lightweight, durable, flexible, and suitable for outdoor use.
• Handwoven rattan
• Genuine lambskin and cowhide leather
• Cotton lining
• Detachable shoulder sling
Dimensions: 10" Width, 10" Height, 3.5" Depth
Care: Leather protector is recommended before use.
Given its rattan exterior, avoid excessive rubbing or direct contact with fabrics to prevent fluff and snags from occurring.
All our products are individually handmade, thus no two pieces are exactly the same. Slight variations are inherent in the methods and natural materials used. These are not product flaws, but are considered minor distinctions that make this piece special and one-of-a-kind.
INNÉ, which means "innate," "inborn," and "natural" in French, is a slow-fashion brand that began in 2018 to promote local products that make use of natural materials and traditional techniques found in the Philippines.
INNÉ is about keeping age-old traditions relevant, breathing new life into them, and recreating them into modern-day essentials.
INNÉ was born out of a desire to bring back the appreciation for slowly and carefully handcrafted pieces by local artisans using raw, natural materials and traditional techniques.
The brand aims to support ethical practices and provide livelihood opportunities by partnering with small families and communities, and ultimately, keeping the quality and art of Filipino craftsmanship alive.
The brand makes a conscious effort to minimize their impact to the environment through their production and packaging processes. INNÉ sources as many sustainable materials as possible from the Philippines and are careful to only produce pieces to meet demand, in small, meaningful quantities.
