Summer time is time for trips to the park, pool, beach or local swimming hole. Sometimes these activities mean carrying a lot of stuff. A good beach bag has a stylish Summer look, yet can fit our beach (or grass) blankets, sunscreen, hats, snacks, toys, and more!
I recently received a large Carol S Miller hand woven beach bag. Spoiler alert: I was amazed at how pretty this bag is and even more amazed at how much I could fit inside the bag.
My Experience Using the Carol S Miller Beach Bag:
The above photograph features items I would take on a beach trip. Most of it fit within the bag (I wore the glasses, flip-flops and hoodie). Even the blue carpet fit inside the bag (if I used a thinner beach towel, I think think the hoodie would have fit!).
Just to be explicit, I put the following in my Carol S Miller Beach Bag: the blue rug, my Hoopnotica travel hula hoop, a playground ball, water-resistant sunscreen, a Kindle, a Kindle Fire, a mini-cooler bag that can fit drinks and snacks, and an ECOlunchbox Wool Insulated lunchette bag for snacks. Unfortunately, my kite was too long to fit, so I will be carrying it.
I think if you are going on a family trip you might need to be more selective in what you pack or take more than one bag. But the size is ample for a couple of people.
Not only is the size impressive, I like the pink and turquoise colored pattern. The bag is available in a few colors and sizes–so if you prefer a smaller bag or a different color combination there are options. I also love that it is fair trade and hand made.
I am impressed with this bag and plan to use it throughout the Summer.

About This Carol S Miller Ravoul Beach Bag:
The following is Carol S. Miller’s descripton of the large-sized Ravoul Beach Bag featured in this post:
“These bags are great for the beach, pool, or picnic. Our bags are created in Madagascar by a fair trade collective of 5 workshops in the region of Manjakatompo. The paffia is purchased by the collective and then shaped and woven.
Each bag has a zip inner pocket, with a flap pocket and drawstring top. The large bag is 20″ x 14″ x 8″ with a 10″ shoulder drop. The Ravoul comes in the following colors: purple/green, brown/neutral, red/orange, orange/yellow.
These bags are also perfect for storage of knitting items, beach towels and even your favorite small doggy!
The raffia and sisal are sustainable plant fibers and the leather is from animal by-products.”
