Based in San Diego, California. All of our straw bags are harvested from seagrass in Asia. The seagrass is grown, picked and dried. Then it is hand-woven together and a special protective gloss is coated to preserve it's elements of the tote. Our totes are designed to withstand moisture and sun. In addition, seagrasstotes ensures a great quality of seagrass and we pay attention to detail resulting in a sturdy tote that won't fray over time. This is a versatile bag that can be used throughout the year to store all your essentials or for a day out to the park or beach and accompany you on your next tropical destination.
