MITENDE: Plain Palm Beach Bag

£ 59.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Hit the beach with MITENDE, our brand-new beach basket for 2023 in stylish white. With leather handles and generous dimensions, this handwoven beach bag will be your summer companion whether you’re beaching or picnicking, heading off on a weekend break or popping out to do the shopping. 

The weavers who produce these natural beach totes are almost all from farming communities, and live in a particularly arid part of South Eastern Kenya. While drought continues to make lives extremely challenging for farmers, palm leaf grows well in hostile conditions such as these.

 Weaving and selling these roomy beach baskets gives families an alternative income that is ecologically sustainable, legal, and safe in a region where many may otherwise turn to poaching or deforestation to make ends meet. Taking pressure off their vulnerable ecosystem and becoming less reliant on farming is essential for these communities to sustain themselves. Basket weaving empowers women through work that is flexible, creative, and fairly paid, to support their families and to protect their environment for generations to come.
