Fringed Bag

Description

These woven bags are hand made from sustainable sisal and have a glorious summery palette. Great as a beach bag or just around town.

They have been woven by a small women’s group in the Kasigau – which is located in an “elephant corridor” that connects the Tsavo West National Park with the Tsavo East National Park.

Approximate size*

Height 27cm (not including strap) x 34cm

Strap drop – 12cm

*As all bags are handmade, please expect some small differences in sizing colours. 

Fair trade benefits to artisans

The majority of residents in areas such as Kasigau are women, as most men (as well as young people) move to nearby towns to look for jobs. Basket weaving is one of the few activities that give the remaining women a sense of agency – despite all social, economic and ecological barriers that hinder them.

About the supplier
