Fabulous Fruit: The Fruit Purse Collection
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!
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!
Beautiful darlings of wicker!
We're excited to introduce you to our newest product: water resistant, reusable shopping totes!
The totes are a little bit meta, in that we encourage you to keep them in your wicker bag, and if it should happen to rain: you then take it from your wicker bag, and put your wicker bag in the tote. TA-DA: WICKER BAG RAIN COAT!
While we don't encourage you to put your wicker-bag-in-a-tote-in-a-pool and fully immerse in water, we have tested these bags out and they should keep your wicker bag safe if you're caught out in an unexpected burst of rain!
As an added bonus ... yes, you can just go ahead and use them as a more traditional shopping bag, if that's your thing! These babies are HUGE and will carry a great deal of spontaneously (or pre-meditated) purchased chocolate.
