This lovely shopping bag was crafted by a friend of ours in rural Kenya. She gave it to us as a gift.
You will note that the strap is made from a necktie. The brightly‐colored stripes are from plastic shopping bags that were tightly wrapped around natural sisal fiber, found close to her home. And it’s totally hand‐woven.
Her husband is very creative too!
