Kenyan Banana Fiber Tote with Leather Trim

Swahili Modern


  • Kenyan artisans expertly weave long strips of fiber extracted from banana palm leaves to bring you this down-to-earth open top tote bag. Naturally variegated, this bag includes a handy flat bottom with a leather trimmed top and handles.

    The totes are durable and natural: perfect for toting all your fresh market finds. Measures 10"D x 19"T (12"T to top of bag, without handles).

  • In Nairobi's Banana Hill suburb, African artisans utilize the fiber of banana palm trees, which grow prolifically in East Africa, to create whimsical gifts for local sale and export. Geoffrey and George head up a group of talented creatives with a penchant for portraying nuances of African life through this sustainable, all-natural medium.
