    Looks like lucite to me, but there are some plastics experts here who can probably tell you with just a glance.

    Very cute & very now. Kate Spade & even more pricey designers have woven wicker this year.
  3. Thanks Brenda! I useless with the plastics stuff!

    Here is a recent page from Lucky mag. I have always loved these purses for summertime!

    Me too....I collect woven bags, particularly the Made in British Hong Kong ones. Today, I carried a vintage NOS white with brown leather trim woven and wore vintage (also NOS) white w/brown trim spectators to church. Oh, and wore a dress, too - ;)...slightly off-white with a chiffon duster of brown leopard print.

    I'm cautiously going to say lucite Bonnie.

    (hopefully someone with more assurance (and knowledge) will come in with the right answer)
