We use sisal, paper, recycled plastic and palm tree as weaving materials.

Kiondo collection bags made of sisal and recycled plastic are for really care free to use as the bag can be rinsed with water in case it gets stayed or dirty.

Bags made of sisal and/or paper are not "washable" as sisal-plastic bags but due to the weaving technique the surface does reject dirt somewhat and you can certainly remove stains with water. We think it is also okey for the life to show on the bag!

How to care for the bags?

Size guide for Kiondo Collection bags

Kiondo bags and baskets are the same size; an extra small basket is the same size as an extra small bag. And if fact, you can use a bag as a basket!

In the picture below you can see especially the difference between small, medium and large baskets and bags.Kiondo baskets and bags size chart image

And the picture below shows the difference especially between large, extra large and our biggest XXL baskets and bags.

As each bag is handmade the size and shape may vary. The basket diameter and/or height may be about 3 cm / 1” smaller or larger than indicated in the size chart below.
