Kenyan Rebellious Women Sisal Purse

Swahili Modern


  • This stylish small purse from Kenya is woven from the tough sisal fiber dyed a hot pink, then finished with an adjustable leather handle and loop-and-button closure.

  • These durable purses will be a dream for a young fashionista in your life. Measures 6"D x 6"T (top of the bag), 24"T to apex of the strap

  • 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 bags are sold to local and international markets. Singing, dancing, and chatting make weaving for export an enjoyable social event!
