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!
Each bag is handmade
As each bag is handmade the size and shape may vary. The diameter and/or height may be about 3 cm / 1.2" smaller or larger than indicated in the size chart below.
Also vegetable tanned leather colour may vary and be different from what is shown in the product images. In the image below you can see colour variation that naturally occurs due to the tanning method.
Our products are quite versatile as you can use a tote bag as a basket or a basket as a bag!
