Our handbags are designed in Australia and then lovingly hand woven and hand painted in limited numbers by artisan weavers in the Philippines using traditional craftsmanship.

Handmade to Order
Our handbags are designed in Australia and lovingly crafted by hand by our weavers in the Philippines. As such, each and every bag will have minor differences, whether it's in the wicker, leather work, or placement of other finishings. These are not faults, but rather a signature of hand craftsmanship from natural materials, and we consider these minor differences to be what makes every bag a unique piece of art. While every effort is made to photograph the true colour of our designs, monitors may display colours differently.
Due to our bags being made-to-order, upon occasion our ateliers may need to substitute materials used in the sample designs with different materials due to supply shortages. Where this occurs, the ateliers will do their best to find the closest possible substitute, and ensure the overall design remains consistent with the sample.
Worldwide complimentary shipping is offered with all orders, and covers your tracking number and full insurance! Customs and other tariffs are the responsibility of the customer. Please email our customer service team at to discuss express shipping rates.
We ship once a week, pending Australia Post availability.
Australia Post is experiencing significant supply and postage delays, and is periodically pausing collections of mail. While we aim to post our in stock bags ASAP, please be aware postage is likely to be slower than usual as a result.

Wicker Darling bags are woven from sustainably, ethically harvested rattan. Our ateliers source rattan from local co-ops and farms to support their communities and to minimise the distance the materials travel. Rattan is sustainably grown, harvested by hand, and by-products are composted.
Bags are handmade by traditional artisans, providing employment with a focus on marginalised communities and nurturing traditional skills and handicrafts, and fostering micro-businesses and individual artisans.
The overall aim is to reduce our environmental footprint as much as possible, and to provide meaningful, fairly paid employment opportunities to our Filipino artisans.
