Large Black Woven Plastic Toubab Tote

Swahili Modern


  • Featured on style blogs, these black and white durable totes are made from sheets of woven plastic left over from making prayer mats in Senegal. Local craftswomen stitch the plastic using a combination of hand and machine techniques.

    The totes make wonderful lightweight shoppers, diaper and toy bags, or beach bags, and can be rinsed clean with water.

    Measures 20"L x 8"W x 15"H (to top of bag), 22"H (to top of handle).

  • Sospenap is located in Dakar and is one of the largest plastic extruding and weaving factories in Africa. We have worked with Sospenap and their friendly staff since 2010, and their colorful plastics have helped us to further the production of hand-woven hampers and baskets that are crucial to the financial wellbeing of Senegalese women.
