UPINDE: Rainbow Stripe Tote Bag
A handwoven sisal tote bag in harmonious rainbow stripes against a natural base, UPINDE is your go-to woven basket bag for long, carefree days: shopping trips, beach days and festival weekends. With its extendable tan leather shoulder straps, you can wear yours high or low under the arm, handheld or in the crook of your arm if preferred.
These rainbow stripe tote bags are part of a very limited production run, produced by a small, rural Kenyan weaving group we have partnered with for over six years. Led by a most charismatic chairlady, these ladies work with exceptional care and precision, 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 commissions like this, they’re working regularly for The Basket Room producing our popular woven shoppers, sisal laundry baskets and banana fibre baskets.
UPINDE is one of seven very special bags we have produced in collaboration with British accessories designer Hannah Harrison. You can read all about this hopeful collaboration, dreamed up in the winter lockdown and driven by a longing for colour and connection, here.
