Sisal & Leather Cowgirl Handbag

  • Woven in Kenya using dyed fibers of the sisal plant, this gorgeous handbag is finished with a tabbed leather top and loop closure.

    Each durable bag includes a strap that can be worn two ways.

    Measures 10"L x 7"W x 13"T (to top of bag), 24"T to apex of strap. Size may vary slightly due to the handmade nature of the product.

  • 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!
