Leather Topped Woven Sisal Bag from Kenya

  • Woven from long strips of fiber extracted from the sisal plant, this gorgeous handbag is finished with a zippered leather top and strap.

    Each bag is generously sized and features an adjustable strap to make this purse adaptable to many body types.

  • 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!
