Senalles, the fashionable Mallorcan straw bag

Once upon a time used by farmers, when they went to the market to buy, what their farm did not deliver, or by kids, to take their books to school, they have become quite fashionable recently.

Senalles, the fashionable Mallorcan straw bag

You might not be familiar with their name, but you have surely seen them all around: the typical Mallorcan straw bag called “Senalles”, hand-made of the leaves of palm trees and dried plants or esparto grass with two handles, which are usually made of leather. Either long handles, to hang it over your shoulder, or short, to carry it as a hand bag.

Basket weaving used to be a craft, that was passed on from generation to generation, and to this day, you can find shops in all of Mallorca, that sell them - as well as other articles made of “straw” - in handmade quality.

Once upon a time used by farmers, when they went to the market to buy, what their farm did not deliver, or by kids, to take their books to school, they have become quite fashionable recently. And how could they not! They are not only environmental-friendly and so much prettier than plastic bags, but also very handy and come in different models: colourful, decorated with floral fabrics, glittery items or shells and tassels and many other options. Rather fancy!
