Meghan Markle Fave Rothy’s Just Launched Machine-Washable Purses—and They’re *So* Chic

Paging Meghan Markle! One of the Duchess of Sussex’s go-to shoe brands, Rothy’s, just announced some pretty major news: In addition to their line of sustainable, machine-washable footwear, they’re introducing sustainable, machine-washable handbags. And they’re structured, sleek and stylish, too.

The bags—which come in five different silhouettes—also feature a brand-new attribute: They’re made using 100-percent recycled materials, thanks to the addition of marine plastic. (Reminder, the brand already uses recycled plastic water bottles to make their shoes, a practice that will be continued with their bags as well.) Bravo, you guys.

And about those silhouettes. There’s the handbag, the essential tote, the dual-zip crossbody, the catch-all (which comes in three different sizes) and the essential pouch. Prices range from $65 for the mini catchall to $350 for the handbag. Each one comes in a variety of colors including bright poppy, sage camo and desert sand. 

As for the machine-washable part? Simply pop it inside the protective bag that comes included (this is meant to keep the bag’s hardware scuff-free) and run the load. Just in case you need more detail, full care instructions are included on the site.

So, will we see Meghan Markle sporting one soon? Royal time will tell.
