Handbags and Totes

Pen & Ink Patterned Sisal Purse

Swahili Modern


  • Woven from long strips of fiber extracted from the sisal plant, this gorgeous handbag is lined, and finished with a leather top and strap. Each bag features an adjustable strap to make this versatile purse a staple accessory. 

    Measures 10"T x 7"W (19"T with strap). Designs may vary slightly due to the handmade nature of this product.

  • 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!
