Handbags and Totes

Classic Sisal Grass Tote in Wheat

Swahili Modern

PK73A

  • Durable and roomy, this handwoven sisal tote will allow you to carry all kinds of gear! Sustainable and fair trade, the perfect staple for your wardrobe. 

    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!
