WINGU: Mono Checkerboard Stripe Crossbody Bag
A handwoven sisal crossbody bag in an on-trend checkerboard pattern, WINGU is the perfect handbag for relaxed days out. Just add purse, keys and sunglasses and you’re good to go! With zip closure and elegant leather shoulder strap in black, WINGU can be worn over the shoulder or cross-body.
These crossbody bags are part of a limited production run, produced by a Kenyan weaving group we have partnered with since the very beginning of The Basket Room. These 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 weaving our popular woven shoppers, sisal laundry baskets and banana fibre baskets.
WINGU is one of seven special designs we have produced in collaboration with British accessories designer Hannah Harrison. You can read all about this hopeful collaboration, envisioned in the winter lockdown and driven by a 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.

HANDMADE IN KENYA
I love my new basket bag. 'The Utopia Collection' is so beautiful and I found difficult to make my mind between the string bag, the tote bag and this shoulder bag because I loved them all. But I am happy with my choice as I think this is the middle size and it was exactly the size I wanted. I am also impressed with the service, the delivery was real fast. Thank you TBR!
