Here at Wicker Darling, we are mostly known for our animal-shaped purse designs…but sometimes, you just really need a fruit purse in your life. At least, I know that’s the case with me! That’s why one of my first creations was Fineapple the pineapple purse, followed shortly by Walter-melon the watermelon purse. As you can see, I’m a big fan of puns. In fact, I have a whole slew of fineapple pineapple puns up my sleeve. These fruit purse designs were a tremendous success. So naturally, I needed to make more of them. Thus, came a second wave of fruit purse designs - and I didn’t just stop at purses!

Our collection of handmade fruit accessories

Now we have a whole range of fruit accessories. Take our lemon accessories, for example. We not only have a beautiful lemon satchel, but a lemon scarf, limoncello brooch, and even lemon fruit earrings! Lemons are always a good idea - they add a ray of sunshine to any outfit.

Equally lovable are our watermelon accessories. After Walter-melon the watermelon purse, I made another watermelon purse on a smaller scale, as well as a gorgeous pair of watermelon earrings thanks to a collaboration with another Australian designer. In fact, all of our handmade jewellery, including our lovely fruit earrings, is made in collaboration with local artisans - and I love supporting other small-business owners in Australia!

A fruit purse is a year-round staple

Fruit of all kinds make such cute summer purses, but you can absolutely wear them all year. Some of us just like to keep life juicy! A fruit purse is also the ideal accessory for a picnic, afternoon tea, stroll through a garden, or simply showing off your cheery personality. 

All our fruit accessories are lovingly handmade in a sustainable fashion. Whenever you make a fruity purchase, you are supporting slow fashion, artisan traditions, and plain good fashion sense. Now isn’t that refreshing?
