Rafiki canvas bag | Black

Rafiki means friend in Swahili. It is a perfect school bag, shopping bag and also a perfect companion for a long weekend trip due to its size and versatility: Rafiki can be carried as a backpack, shoulder bag or handbag. 

Black Rafiki bag is not afraid of a downpour, the fabric is sturdy water-repellent canvas and the sole is made of a car tire's inner tube. Both the rubber bottom and the metal loops on the handles are made of recycled materials.

Rafiki bags are made by fair trade workshop Bombolulu. Located on the coast of Kenya in the city of Mombasa, this fair trade workshop employs and trains disabled people. All the profits are used to produce important items such as wheelchairs and crutches for those in need.
