The Best Bamboo Bags Under $100
One of my favorite bag trends that is still going strong is the bamboo bag trend! I am sure you have seen those cute wooden bags that look like chic picnic baskets. They are so trending right now and have been for a couple of years. The bamboo bags come in a lot of different shapes, sizes and colors. I personally own 3 bags and love them. In today’s post you can check out all the cutest bamboo bags under $100 and learn where did the trend begin, the different styles and where to shop!
WHERE DID THE BAMBOO BAG TREND BEGIN?
The bamboo bag phenomenon began with the brand Cult Gaia! In 2012, the brand launched the Ark Bag ” Noah’s ark” with the tan picnic basket bag. But it was in mid 2016 when every blogger and influencer had this bag. I have to admit was not initially on board with the trend for several months. I am not always one to jump quickly on trends, but several months later I began to like it and bought myself a dupe.
The Cult Gaia bags are sooo pretty and great quality, but for the longest they were $200-300 per bag. I just could not drop that kind of a money on a bag like this. They have been having more sales so sometimes you can find them a bit cheaper. So I bought a dupe and evidently more dupes became available under $100 which I show below.
THE STYLES OF BAMBOO BAGS
From the tan color to dark brown to greens, pinks and acrylics, the famous ark bamboo bag has evolved in a lot more shapes and colors turning this summer bag to a year round bag. One of my favorite bags styles are the round bags. I got SOOO many compliments from ages 20-60 on my green round bamboo bag. This rich color makes it a great piece that looks good with a lot of my outfits. The dark brown is great for a fall outfit.
One question I got a lot is do I put anything in your bag?? Of course I do. I use it, but I make sure it is a tad bit organized- so like no loose paper or receipts because it can been seen. My wallet, keys lipsticks and hand wipes fit in there just fine. I love taking it on the beach too. Just make sure what you put in there cannot slip out like a hotel key card. My keys sometimes pokes out, but never falls out since I have multiply keys on ring.
The acrylic style was the next wave of bags. With this style, no matter whether you are getting Cult Gaia or a dupe will almost always been over $100. These come in some pretty colors and I have indicated the acrylic styles below.
WHERE TO BUY BAMBOO BAGS
These are my favorite stores to buy bamboo bags under $100. Those that are over $100 are marked. Be sure to order fast because some of these styles are in “final sale” status, which means once they sell out they are gone!
