Description

Be a goddess with these gorgeous colourful tote bags! Tight, tribal patterns and stunning craftsmanship make the them the ideal basket bag for hitting the yoga studio, the market or the beach with. This colourful creation is woven by a member of a family-run weaving co-operative in Eastern Region of Kenya.

Weaving each basket bag can take up to six days, and this work is fitted in around the weavers’ other domestic chores and farming duties. Yarn used for the basket bag comes from recycled jumpers and wools, whilst local sisal grass forms the base of each coloured strand. These yarn and sisal bags are then sent to a leading workshop nearby in Kenya. .We are proud that our basket bags are 100% Kenyan-made, using only locally-available materials and the skills of a very talented labour force..

The sheer skill and creativity it takes to produce one of these oversized handbags is woven through the generations, passed from grandmothers to mothers to daughters. In producing and selling our basket bags, the women of this Kenyan weaving cooperative are empowered to support their families with a reliable additional income – and work that is both fair and flexible.
