These beautiful open top handbags are handwoven by rural Kamba women in Kenya from tough sisal fibers and soft wool. Flat leather handles complete the look for this season and beyond!
Measures 10"L x 8"W x 8"T (to top of bag), 18"T (to top of handles). 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!
