TRUSS’ FOLIO AND SMALL CROSS-BODY BAGS.

Truss bags evoke the colors, shapes, and sturdiness of traditional market bags from the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. Little wonder, then, that co-founders Elise Durbecq and Gillian Tozer collaborate with small-business owners and weavers from that region to produce the chic accessories, which have the added benefit of helping support local artisanal trade. The Fall/Winter ’16 collection (available this summer) features clutch, folio, cross-body, and tote styles in graphic plaids of different colors.
