Description

A two-tone sisal shopper in black and natural tones, with striking black leather carry handles. The HIMIZA shopper bag is handwoven in Kenya’s rural Eastern Region, and hand dyed to achieve its two colours. Use yours as an everyday handbag with room to pack for overnight stays, grocery shopping and trips to the gym.

Made from local sisal grass, the preparation process is extensive even before dyeing and weaving begins: the grass is first harvested and rolled by hand. The HIMIZA’s khaki bottom is dyed with sand in boiling water and heated over an outdoor fire.

Basket weaving is an additional source of income for the women in the cooperative, whose main earnings come from unreliable subsistence farming.

All our hand-woven bags come with a thank you card from the cooperative that made it, and you can meet the weavers HERE. 

 

Material:  SISAL & LEATHER

Dimensions: H30cm x W47cm (width is measured at widest part of bag)

Please note, as this is a handmade product, dimensions & colour may vary from those shown in the photographs.
