There is always the risk of over-accessorizing, but not when the accessory in question is this handsome. Currently on our radar: byAMT x Mimot Studio’s Strap Planters, woven leather baskets that give your containers handles. Designer Alissia Melka-Teichroew cites artist Donald Judd’s minimalist designs as inspiration for the Strap Collection, which also includes baskets ($192), a key ring ($16.50), and tote ($317).


Above: Baskets come in three sizes, to fit standard 10-, 12-, and 14-inch pots, and are priced $165, $200, and $220, respectively. 


Above: Shiny copper-plated rivets fasten leather straps and handles–in style.


Above: A basket in an ideal size for storing magazines is also part of byAMT x Mimot Sudio’s Strap Collection. On Remodelista, Izabella praised it as a Basket Too Pretty to Hide.
