Deep black stripes adorn this jumbo shopper bag which was handmade in rural Eastern Region of Kenya. Spacious and stylish, the SAKAFU is perfect for weekends away and also makes beautiful home storage for bathroom towels and throws in living rooms.

Meticulously hand woven by one of the weaving cooperative’s 45 female members, the SAKAFU is made from local sisal grass. These fibrous leaves undergo a lengthy process of harvesting, rolling, and dyeing with soil before the weaving begins.

Each of our large shopping bags come with a thank you card from the cooperative that produced it. Basket weaving has become a supplementary source of income for our weavers, whose main earnings come from unpredictable subsistence farming. Meet the weavers HERE.
