A fabulous woven bag for weekends away and trips to the beach, the jumbo-size MTOTO sports bright yellow and pink stripes on a 100% natural dye base, and is handmade in the Eastern Region of Kenya.
One of just 45 skilled female weavers produced this unique shopper bag by hand, working within a rural weaving cooperative in the Eastern Region of Kenya. Made from indigenous sisal grass, the preparation process takes time and a great deal of skill: sisal leaves are collected, hand-rolled and then dyed in boiling water before the weaving begins.
Buying one of our woven shopping bags helps these women and their families become less dependent on unreliable subsistence farming, which is the primary source of income in this community. Each bag arrives with a thank you card from the cooperative that made yours, and you can meet the weavers HERE.
