Rattan-Wrapped Drinkware Is Our New Favorite Summer Accessory
There are plenty of questionable design trends that came out of the 1970s: shag rugs, bean bag chairs, avocado appliances. But amongst all the disco balls and patterned linoleum, there was also an emphasis on Boho style. Fringe, macramé, and crochet were all en vogue during the era, but none has made a more indelible mark than rattan. The woven material is a perennial favorite for indoor and outdoor furnishings thanks to its texture and breezy island feel. Over the decades, it’s also graced accessories, including stylish drinkware.
Now, as we all prepare for an unplanned summer spent largely at home, the escapist vibes of these Boho-chic accessories feel more appropriate than ever. Capable of elevating your basic gin and tonic or matching the prettiness of a watermelon ginger mojito, the smooth glasses tucked into handwoven sleeves are the perfect pieces for any soiree, whether you’re hosting a small crowd or a party of one. And thanks to their mixed materials and handcrafted appearance, they’re instant showstoppers. (Translation: You might NOT want to keep these tucked away in a cupboard.)
