I have been receiving some questions about this beautiful YSL raffia bag and I think it is time to answer them!
This style is available in two different sizes, small and medium, and in two different colors, natural and black.
I own the medium size and I love it even though I think it looks big on me. There was really not a big difference in price between this and the small one, so decided to get the bigger one. Go big or go home, right?!
I have had the bag for almost three months and have been wearing it constantly as the color makes it so easy to match most outfits.
One of my concerns, echoed by some of my followers on Instagram, was that the bag would lose its shape after wearing it for a while. Well, let me tell you, the bag has held its shape perfectly! I usually store mine in its protective bag, stuffed with the paper it originally had inside when I got it. Luckily, I do not have any complains yet…
Another concern that came up was if the bag would easily get dirty, but that also has not been an issue for me! I really do not baby this bag around, like I do with some of my Gucci, and it has not shown any signs of dirt and most importantly no rips. The bag, in my opinion, is really well made with really good quality material.
So what do you think of the raffia bag, would you buy it?
If you said yes, unfortunately, the natural is sold out everywhere online right now. Up until two days ago, there was a small one available but that seems to be gone now too. But keep your eyes open, if you are lucky maybe you can still find it in a store or just go harass your favorite SA and hope for the best! 🙂
It is still available in black, however, so if you want it, you better act fast!
The small is now only available in black here.
There are other raffia bags in different styles also from Saint Laurent here.
And last, if you do not feel like splurging on a raffia bag, there are more affordable options here, here and here.
