Swahili African Modern

Classic Blush Sisal Handbag


Celebrate summer with this unique bag that will take you from brunch to the beach! Artisans in Kenya hand weave these natural handbags from tough sisal fibers. Sisal grows well in the semi-arid climate of eastern Kenya, and its spiky leaves contain long fibers that can be extracted for weaving. Leather handles and a wooden toggle closure finish this simple yet stylish purse.

Because this is a handcrafted item, each may vary slightly.

Dimensions: 12"L x 8"W x 9"H Crafted from: sisal, leather
