I Bought A Jute Bag that Isn’t Trending Anymore – Should it Matter?

Jute bagI think I experienced a fashion epiphany the other day when I bought my first jute bag from Zara during its annual winter sale.

It was the last one of its kind when I spotted it on a shelf amongst a slew of multi colored handbags. I wonder why no one else had taken it?
