What Are These Sculptural Bamboo Bags We're Seeing Everywhere? Cult Gaia, Baby.

I love handbags, so when I saw these cool, sculptural bamboo handbags popping up on style bloggers and in street style photos, I needed the details. Turns out, LA-based brand Cult Gaia is behind a bunch of them.

According to their website, Cult Gaia “designs beautiful heirloom items that will live in your closet forever.” One look at their bags and we’d say they’re definitely succeeding. From the wooden top-handle bags to their new, colorful acrylic designs, these accessories are the epitome of wearable art.

What makes Cult Gaia even more amazing is that the prices are shockingly accessible. Many of their beautiful bags sell for less than $200, which is pretty unheard of when it comes to designer purses.

If you’ve been wanting to treat yourself to a new bag for summer, we say snatch up a Cult Gaia ASAP.
