We first heard about Truss when Kara founder Sarah Law told us that their plaid bag (pictured above) was her favorite tote bag. Upon further research, we learned that it’s a several-year-old New York–based company founded by Opening Ceremony alums Gillian Tozer and Elise Durbecq. The bags are all crafted from sturdy plastic by local Oaxacan weavers, and a percentage of profits go toward supporting local communities. Right now, this tote — which works for a short jaunt to the beach, weekend trips, or a summer Friday at the office — is 40 percent off at Net-a-Porter, alongside several other festive Truss bags.
