Carry-all bags for a cause. Aranaz for Rags to Riches

Need a new carry-all that comes with an added bonus of having a conscience? Yes, that doesn’t really make a lot of sense but ground-breaking social enterprise Rags to Riches has commissioned several of the country’s top designers to make products to raise funds and awareness for their projects. Amina Aranaz-Alunan who is the creative director behind Aranaz Bags and accessories presents her newest line of “buslo” bags.

These unique-ly shaped handbags are made from knitted cotton basket weave with leather strap. They have a pandan leave (banig) basket weave base. Cotton lining with interior zip, wall and cell phone pockets.

Price-wise, it’s a pretty friendly one at P 2,589.00 considering it will probably last a lifetime. It’s also weather-warrior because of its natural materials, and may look even nicer with a little wear and tear. I’m eye-ing the one in ash as it is a nice neutral but not too gloomy-grey.

A great shade, that goes with everything. Buslo in Ash.

I can imagine stuffing one of these bags last minute and throwing into the car when you’re in a rush with no fear of anything falling out or the bag getting ruined. Ok, I should take better care of my personal items, but there are just some days when time seems to be moving faster than you would like it to.

If you’re up to a little weekend sojourn or just want a new arm accessory, check in at for their newest offerings of Aranaz for Rags to Riches. A purchase of a bag goes a long way in supporting the livelihood of Rags to Riches community partners. Good reason to indulge and enjoy something new.
