CHIMBA: Hot Red Wool and Sisal Tote Bag


With its bold red stripes and contrasting pink base, CHIMBA is a yarn and sisal basket bag of rose-tinted dreams. Ideal for summer festivals, market trips and the beach, this pink and red woven tote was handwoven in rural Kenya. 

The Basket Room partners with a network of twelve Kenyan weaving groups - with over thirty weavers in each group – to produce these red and pink striped woven totes. Weaving each basket bag can take up to six days: this is flexible work that fits in around domestic work, childcare and farming. Finished baskets are then sent to a Nairobi leather workshop where cow hide shoulder straps are produced and attached by skilled leatherworkers. 

Dimensions: 35cm W X 30cm H approx (width is measured at the widest part of the bag)

Strap Length: 29cm approx"
