Beautifully hand woven with chic leather handles, the ELEKEA bag sports clean white stripes on 100% natural undyed sisal, evocative of Kenyan sand and stone. This stylish shopper bag can be used as an everyday handbag for grocery shopping, or kept for spa trips and overnight stays.
One of just 45 skilled women wove this unique shopper bag by hand, working as part of a rural weaving cooperative in the rural Eastern Region of Kenya. Made from indigenous sisal grass, the preparation process is extensive and all done by hand: the plant’s leaves are harvested and then split, hand-rolled and dyed with local soil.
To own one of our hand woven bags is to become an important part of our story. Basket weaving has become a valuable extra source of income, helping women from farming communities to support their families during the unpredictable dry seasons. Each bag comes with a thank you card from the cooperative that wove your shopper bag. Meet the weavers HERE.
