Sky Blue Wool and Sisal Tote with Leather Handles

PK100-R2

  • Rural Kamba women in Kenya hand weave these large, open-top totes from durable sisal fibers and soft wool. Finished with soft leather handles. Colorful and durable, the perfect addition to any wardrobe! 

    Measures 14"T x 14"W at the base, and 20-22"W across the top. Due to the handmade nature of this item, slight variation may occur.

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