SUSTAINABLE HANDCRAFTED FASHION

Empowering Women and Girls in Kenya

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit brand. Our mission is to empower artisan women in Kenya make a sustainable, dignified living by harnessing ancient craftsmanship in weaving, beading, basketry, art and more. 10% of your purchase funds reproductive health education and menstrual hygiene kits to keep girls in school. They get a consistent education, dignity, safety and privacy during their period.

Sustainability is at the core of who we are. Our bags are crafted by hand using sisal fiber from the agave plant and leather. Sisal fiber is eco-friendly, natural, organic, biodegradable and circular. It takes about three weeks and fifty agave leaves harvested, stripped, dried, dyed, stringed and woven into just one bag. Every bag is unique. Our partnership helps the women share their craft and provide for their families.
