This sisal, woven tote is handmade by a weaving cooperative in southeastern Kenya. The women hand-dye the sisal fibers and weave them into these beautiful works of art. Due to the arid landscape and relative remoteness, jobs are hard to come by and weaving has been a way for these women to reach self-sufficiency. This tote is great for an overnight trip or for everyday use.
Color: Canyon (Deep Red-Brown)
