INSPIRED by the traditional market bags of Oaxaca, Mexico (where each bag is made by local artisans), Brooklyn-based handbag label TRUSS is creating updated versions that can go from errands to evening drinks. Their newest Fall collection (available in July) features a chic double handle that is sturdy enough to carry all your goods home from the farmer's market (and won't wear and tear easily).

For designers Elise Durbecq and Gillian Tozer, who were drawn to the bold colors and geometric shapes of the local market bags on their first visit to Oaxaca, TRUSS isn't just about creating cool totes. They also work to support and preserve the growth and craftsmanship of Oaxaca's artisanal trade, particularly young women.
