Handbags and Totes

Classic Cream Kenyan Sisal and Leather Handbag

Swahili Modern

PKC3A


  • These stylish cream handbags are handwoven from durable sisal in Kenya and feature leather handles.

    You'll feel great carrying this purse and knowing that it is fair trade and crafted with environmentally friendly materials. Sisal grass is very sustainable in Kenya and the purse's cow leather is salvaged from local scraps, then cut and conditioned to an impressive finish.

    Measures 11"D x 16"T, 10"T to the top of the bag.

  • 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!
