Labour Of Love

We pride ourselves in creating the highest level of quality achievable for hand woven goods by maximizing on quality control in the craftsmanship of our weaving, leather and horn work processes. The practices in our value chain are ethical and responsible. This means;

  • Using responsibly sourced leather and up-cycled cow horn
  • Providing fair Labour wages to our artisans and weavers
  • Working with women to provide economic sustainability
  • The weaving

    Weaving is a tradition in Kenyan culture. Our weaving is done by an all-women initiative from the rural villages of Machakos County, Kenya. The bags are made out of sisal which is grown locally. The fibre from the sisal plant is extracted by a process known as decortication where leaves are crushed, beaten and brushed away by a rotating wheel so that only the fibre remains which is then rolled to twine, dyed and woven

    The Leather and Horn work

    We use premium quality leathers such as Nubuck leather to ensure the longevity and durability of our bags. The lining used is natural fibre suede fabric. We work with up cycled cow horn which is transformed into beautiful accent pieces that add value to our hand-woven bags. It takes a meticulous process of identifying the best quality horn which is then manipulated into glossy particolored pieces.
