Swahili Modern Nautical Blue Over-Sized Sisal Tote by Swahili Modern at Abuja Media. MPN: PK72C. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. This spacious bag is woven by rural Kamba women living near Kitui, Kenya, using tough sisal fibers that are dyed a beautiful blue with natural grass
Leather handles allow you to take this tote on the road with enough gear for the day. Sisal grows well in the semi-arid climate of eastern Kenya, and this bag is sustainably made as well as fair trade.
Measures 16"D x 16"T (to top of bag), 24"T (to top of handle); size may vary slightly.
In the rural Kenyan countryside around the city of Kitui, women specialize in weaving the tough fibers of the agave sisalana plant. Sisal's spiky leaf clusters erupt from a dry landscape and often requires long journeys to gather. Once woven, these womens' totes are sold to local and international markets. Singing, dancing, and chatting make weaving for export an enjoyable social event!
Swahili Modern works directly with artisans in over 10 African countries to bring you handmade, original designs. All of our products are fair trade certified by the Fair Trade Federation, and our artisans are fairly compensated.
For a limited time only, all orders ship with a free gift! Gifts will vary and include items such as a shea butter lip balm, soapstone box, or safari pocket mirror. One free gift per order. This small gift is our way of saying thank you for supporting fair trade in Africa.
