MVUA: Mono Checkerboard Stripe Tote Bag
A handwoven sisal tote bag in standout mono chequerboard squares, MVUA is your go-to woven basket bag for long, carefree days: shopping trips, beach days and festival weekends. With its extendable leather shoulder straps in black, you can wear yours high or low under the arm, handheld or in the crook of your arm if preferred.
These woven tote bags are part of a very limited production run and have been produced by a Kenyan weaving group we have partnered with since the very beginning of The Basket Room. These wonderful women have an exceptional eye for detail and have previously worked with us on large commissions from ethical brand LUSH, and a collaboration with Jigsaw in 2016. When they’re not working on special projects like this, they’re busy producing our popular woven shoppers, sisal laundry baskets and banana fibre baskets.
MVUA is one of seven limited designs we have produced in collaboration with British accessories designer Hannah Harrison. You can read all about this hopeful collaboration, driven by a lockdown longing for colour and connection, here.
Due to the natural fibres used to produce these woven bags, please keep your bag dry as dyes can run slightly if exposed to excessive moisture.
