KAHAWIA is really rather special - a hand-woven basket bag made from banana tree bark, with leather shoulder straps and carry handles for multifunctionality and style.
Everything about this beautiful bag’s creation is ethical and sustainable, from the indigenous banana bark fibres to our ethical and respectful partnership with the Kenyan weaving cooperative that makes them. Once woven, the baskets are sent to a leading leather workshop where cow hide shoulder straps are produced and attached by artisan leatherworkers.
To own one of our ethical basket bags is to become an important part of our journey: a story of sustainability and craftsmanship. We are proud to support these weavers in a truly fair trade, providing a sustainable source of income for farming communities whose primary income can be unpredictable.
All our hand-woven bags come with a thank you card from the cooperative that made it, and you can meet the weavers HERE.
