Senegalese Hand-Spun Cotton Bag

Swahili Modern


  • These African purses are made from an exceptional cotton that is grown, carded, and spun by a single community in Senegal.

    Each bag features an interior pocket, shoulder strap, tassels, and a cowrie shell closure. The bags are comfortable to carry and show your support for handmade, fair trade fashion.

    For best care, hand-wash in cool water and air dry. 

  • Ndem Maam Samba is a community in the arid landscape of the Baol region, 75 miles outside of Dakar. The Ndem community performs work as a form of worship and have created a nearly self-sufficient community with 365 artisans in 17 workshops. The profits from their eco-friendly, homegrown clothing contributes dramatically to schools, clinics, reforested tracts, micro-credit, wells, and crops.
