Raffia Twist Bag

$79.00 $110.00

Behind the Design: Indego Africa partnered with artisans in Rwanda who create handwoven products using natural banana, maize and palm leaves. The artisans source leaves from local farmers, or pick them themselves, and then place them under the sun to dry until they take on varying shades of brown, tan, and white (they also sometimes dye them by hand!) When the leaves are ready, the artisans twist, braid, or weave them with a needle and thread to create beautifully handmade baskets, bags, hats, and more. *Due to the handmade quality, some size and color variation may occur.

-hand-dyed, crocheted raffia

-locally sourced natural fibers

-16" x 12"

-spot clean

-bright colors will fade in direct sunlight
