Many of our travel plans have changed this summer due to COVID-19. Even if you won’t be jet-setting anytime soon, Irvington resident Catherine Woods’ adventure-inspired handbag-and-accessories collection, Into the Woods, will get you excited about your next trip to the beach or help you feel ornamental in your backyard.

Her globally inspired collection was born from a trip to Indonesia and features customizable, handmade palm bags, emblazoned with locations like Palm Beach, Malibu, and Sag Harbor, in bright hues and neutral shades, clutches in the shape of starfish, and geometric-shaped bags. Accessories include oversized wide-brim rainbow colored hats and palm-tree earrings.

Each bag is hand-dyed and crafted by skilled artisans in Indonesia and South America for sustainable, unique pieces that range from $75 to $260, available on her website,
