Handbags and Totes

Classic Linen White Sisal Grass Tote

Swahili Modern

PK73B

  • This roomy tote, handwoven in Kenya from durable sisal, is durable and sustainable for your carrying whatever you need!

    Measures 16"D x 16.5"T. Due to the handmade nature of this item, slight variation is expected.

  • 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!
