    Wicker, lace, and nautical stripes...they're all summer-style hallmarks that we keep revisiting, year after year. And, naturally, since we're fans of classics — with a twist, that is — we're really digging the newest collection from S.F.-based bag maker Jamie Lim, for sustainable line Kayu.

    The spring/summer '12 offerings include hand-woven straw clutches, hand-dyed lace, and precious shell details, all juxtaposed against warm wood and adding up to a truly unique collection for the three-year-old brand.

    Take a peek at our favorites from the line after the jump. And, if you're thinking of indulging, keep in mind that a portion of proceeds from each bag go back to educational causes in Cambodia.
