Silver Oversized Woven Plastic Toubab Tote

Swahili Modern


  • This durable tote, featured on style blogs and The Grommet, is made from sheets of woven plastic left over from making Sengalese prayer mats. Local craftswomen stitch the plastic using a combination of hand and machine techniques.

    The totes make wonderful lightweight beach bags, for yoga gear, or bags for all the things busy moms carry around. They 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.
