The Story


In 2018, soul sisters for decades— Marla Toplitzky and Kacy Lubell—launched their original collection of SALT handwoven bag straps. Inspired by Wayúu Mochila bag techniques, each piece is filtered through a fresh and vibrant lens.

Twisting together time-honored techniques and modern innovation, each strap marries artfully handwoven natural materials in thoughtful palettes with quality finishing from New York City.

A SALT strap infuses every bag it hooks with a fresh pop that’s easy to throw over your shoulder. We offer a size for every fit and bag. Check out our Strap Finder to find the perfect one.


Each strap is handwoven by traditional Colombian artisans.

SALT supports the economic and cultural growth of these handworker collectives.

A portion of proceeds from each purchase goes to our giving partner, Nest, a non-profit dedicated to the advancement of global artisans through transparency, sustainability and advocacy.


We love your style and celebrating the individualism of how you wear your strap. Thank you for being a part of our story. Spread the word and stay salty.
