Sisal Handbag - Khaki

Rural Kamba women in Kenya hand weave these vibrant 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 finish this simple yet stylish purse.

Because this is handcrafted item, each may vary slightly.
