Despite crochet's humble origins, the needlecraft technique has taken the fashion set by storm, and is showing zero signs of stopping in 2024.

It experienced something of a revival in the Swinging Sixties, transforming from a homemaker's art into a trend frontrunner. A new generation cottoned onto the playful effect of interlocked loops, championing the vivid granny square well into the next decade.

Recent runways show that crochet is back for SS24, featured at the likes of Stella McCartney, Aknvas and Gabriela Hearst, translated into a variety of stylish forms, from poolside maxis to joy-inducing kaftans. And as it happens, we're thrilled to report that crochet bags are officially not a step too far.

How we chose:

  • Style & technique: We've scoured the internet's top fashion sites for the crochet bags that will give your summer accessory game a serious upgrade. While crochet lends itself to a free-spirited, holiday feel, we've chosen pieces that will elevate an outfit both this season and beyond. 
  • Price: Whether you're planning on splashing out or bagging a bargain, we've got a crochet bag in your price range. We've selected this season's best, ranging from high street brands to luxe designer labels.

Hello! Fashion shares the best crochet bags to shop right now:

  • Best Crochet Bags

    H&M orange crochet tote bag

    Crochet-Look Shopper

    Crafted from...

    100% paper. 

    If you're heading to the beach for a day of sun-soaked lounging, this burnt orange piece by H&M will fit all your must-haves with ease. I love the textural contrast of the different panels, and think it would look great with a flowy kaftan and leather slides.

  • Floral crochet straw basket bag

    Floral Crochet Straw Basket Bag

    Oscar de la Renta

    Crafted from...

    Straw and leather.

    If you're planning on making a major poolside statement, this textured tote by Oscar de la Renta is a retro floral extravaganza. The rustic fringing feels earthy, and will mask your essentials if you prefer them out of sight. Style with a black strapless belted swimsuit and a printed kimono.

  • Tory Burch crochet demi-moon bag

    Mini Fleming Crochet-Knit Shoulder Bag

    Tory Burch

    Crafted from...


    Crafted from raffia, this demi-moon-shaped bag by Tory Burch feels extremely versatile. I love the chunky top handle strap for an added tactile element, and while the pink and tan colour combination has a certain summery prettiness, it could also work beautifully well into autumn.

  • Cream crochet tote bag

    Crochet-Style Tote

    Crafted from...

    100% paper. 

    If you're into a neutral colour palette, this slimline tote by Hollister fits the bill perfectly. Featuring a braided strap and crochet-style patterned squares, it would make for a great easy-breezy beach bag, roomy enough for a book, your shades and a bottle of Factor 50. 

  • Yellow crochet bag

    Popcorn Basket Leather-Trimmed Crocheted Waxed-Cotton Tote

    JW Anderson

    Crafted from...

    Waxed-cotton and calf leather.

    Vivid and playful, this mini basket bag by JW Anderson would make for the perfect poppy accessory accompaniment to an otherwise understated colour palette. Style with the chunky top handle or across the body with the slender shoulder strap.

  • Cream rose crochet bag

    Magda Crochet-Knit and Satin Shoulder Bag

    Magda Butrym

    Crafted from...


    Rose motifs are everywhere for SS24, and Polish label Magda Butrym excels in wearable, three-dimensional florals. Capable of housing all your essentials, this cream crochet drawstring bag feels romantic and statement.

  • Lilac crochet bag

    Nicoletta Crochet-Knit Bag


    Crafted from...


    Artisan-advocate label Nannacay is all about bringing crafting to the fore, and this lilac mini bag is super sweet. What the open-top lacks in practicality, the overall design more than makes up for in wearable whimsicality. 

  • Anya Hindmarch brown crochet bag

    Crochet-Bow Leather-Trim Raffia Tote Bag

    Anya Hindmarch

    Crafted from...


    Crafted in Madagascar, this elegant tote by cult-adored British accessory purveyor Anya Hindmarch feels classic and infinitely versatile. Featuring the brand's signature bow motif as the focal point, the design is unfussy, and lends itself to a plethora of different holiday outfits.

  • Dolce & Gabbana crochet bag

    Small Sicily Soft Crochet Shoulder Bag

    Dolce & Gabbana

    Crafted from...

    50% cotton, 30% nylon and 20% leather.

    Steeped in Sicilian spirit, this top handle bag by Dolce & Gabbana would make for an excellent summer accessory investment. The white crochet body has relaxed feel, but the addition of gold-toned hardware and leather accents gives it a structural, evening-appropriate air.

  • Prada pink crochet tote bag

    Crochet Tote Bag

    Crafted from...

    Raffia-effect yarn.

    The summer It-bag to beat is undoubtedly Prada's slim, cool-girl-approved tote. The piece has infiltrated our holiday wish list yet again, and for SS24, we're eyeing up the utterly Instagrammable bubblegum pink colourway.
