All wispy whites on denim blue, the MADOA conjures memories of a blustery Kenyan sky. Hand woven in Kenya’s rural Eastern Region, this jumbo shopper bag is great for minibreaks and can also be used as stylish home storage for towels, rugs and blankets.

One weaver of just 45 women produced this beautiful woven shopper bag by hand, working as part of a rural weaving cooperative. Made from local sisal grass, the preparation process is thorough and all performed by hand: the plant’s leaves are first harvested, then hand-rolled and dyed in boiling water.

Every one of our hand-woven bags come with a thank you card from the cooperative that made yours, and you can meet those weavers right HERE. Most of the members in this women’s weaving cooperative come from farming families whose income is unpredictable, especially in the dry seasons. Basket weaving has become a valuable source of alternative income for these communities, so buying one of our shopping bags directly supports this trade.
