We are beyond delighted to introduce you all to Moby Wick (AAAWWW YESSS we went there)! Our wicker whale handbag is spacious, fits a full-sized bottled beverage, and will work flawlessly with all your nautical themed outfits! 

Our one-of-a-kind Moby Wick the Wicker Whale Bag is lovingly handcrafted by artisan weavers in the Philippines. As such, each and every whale purse will have minor differences, whether it's in the weave of the wicker, leather work, or other finishings. These are a unique signature of expert craftsmanship.

Product Details

Our Moby Wick whale purse is approximately 20 inches tail to nose, and 22 inches at the widest point. That’s deep-sea diving there!

This wonderful whale purse is available with your choice of either wicker or leather handles (please scroll through to the photo of the sausage dog bag to see the wicker style of handles!). The former is a lovely vegan option.

Our charming whale handbag has a loose cotton lining to take advantage of the internal shape of the bag - large enough to fit your wallet, a clutch of keys, a very large phone, those three red lipsticks you've always got in your handbag, and that random packet of doodads you know will come in handy one day!

All pre-ordered Moby whale purses will arrive with a hand-signed collector card, a bespoke dust bag for storage, and a small gift - courtesy of another Australian small business/designer.

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.

Our Ethics

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.
