Mwanzo Woven Sisal Shopper
Our hot pink and orange Mwanzo colour block shopper is handmade from sisal with twisted sisal handles. Use as a stunning handbag, for beach trips or to transport your gym kit with style.
This beautiful bag is handwoven from sisal grass near the Masinga Dam in Kenya. The lengthy process includes locally harvesting and hand-rolling the grass before dying the sisal to produce the bold, rich colours.
Weaving takes place primarily during the dry seasons, since most weavers are subsistence farmers using basket weaving as a supplementary means of income. To buy one of our woven baskets is to support our commitment to empowering women through fair trade and to receive fair pay. Every basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative.
Each basket is Fair Trade, vegan, sustainable, natural, biodegradable and renewable. Wipe clean.
