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

The Kiondo collection bags are woven with sisal and either recycled or upcycled plastic so are really care free as these bags can be rinsed with water when they get stained or dirty.

Bags made of sisal or paper or a combination of sisal and paper are not water friendly like the bags made with both sisal and plastic - but due to the weaving technique the surface does reject dirt to an extent and you can remove some stains with a bit of water. We think it is also OK for life to show on the bag!
