COLOUR YOUR WORLD kiondo // SlimStripe Natural sisal + polythene + leather handles
THIN STRIPE: This beautiful natural sisal and recycled plastic Kiondo in red and orange will bring the colour and energy of Africa into your home. Handwoven by women working in a small weaving cooperative in Eastern Kenya, a community we are growing daily. Kiondos are awesome as your market or beach bag and storage of any kind.. think laundry, kid’s toys, firewood or your favourite indoor plant.
A Kiondo is an African handwoven handbag typically made from sisal and is indigenous to the Kikuyu and Kamba tribes of Kenya. You will never see two baskets the same and the small irregularities you may find comes from the true beauty of #madebyhand
bibi&me collaborate with female weaving cooperatives throughout Kenya and give full support and training to the women we work alongside. Our relationships are based on trust and fairtrade and we are most definitely here for the long term. A Kiondo this size may take up to 4 full days to create and usually three weeks from order to fulfillment as they are woven in between times of a busy family and work life. Basket weaving has become an additional sustainable income source for our weavers and they are as excited to “do business” as we are.
Every purchase you make with bibi&me goes straight back into the community.
MATERIALS: Natural sisal and recycled plastic. Natural leather handles.
