Gray and Natural Tie-Dye Bag

Swahili Modern


  • This chic bag is woven from dyed gray and natural tough sisal fibers so you can stuff this full of goodies time after time or use as a durable handbag.

    Measures 10"L x 10"W x 16"T.

  • 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!
