A One-of-a-Kind Accessory - The Josephine Bag September 04 2014, 0 Comments
Kenya is famous for its high quality handmade goods, but one that we are totally and utterly in love with is the Josephine Bag! Being hand made, each bag is a beautifully crafted product with a completely unique design.
The bags are hand woven and designed by Miss Josephine, a lovely lady Lov'edu's founder Anna met on her trip to Kenya last year. They are made out of dyed wool and leather. She uses a multitude of natural dyes to create beautiful colourful bags. The straps are made out of quality leather.
Our Josephine bags all have a round shape but come in different sizes so you can choose them depending on how you want to use them. The big basket style ones a perfect for a day at the beach or for a trip to the market. In Kenya they are in fact used as a shopping basket for groceries and shopping. The smaller bags have a zipper and make the perfect accessory to wear in the city centre as they add a colourful touch to your street style!
Kenyan Bags are often hand made by women on the edge of poverty and the production of products such as these gives women in Kenya an opportunity to build a better life for themselves and their families.
Lov’edu is an ethical fashion company who source hand made materials directly from the artisans to support African local economy. We promote fair trade, consciousness and individuality to our customers all over the world.
Thanks to Josephine and her hard work (it takes between one to two weeks to complete a bag of this size), you can be sure that your bag will last for years and years. Enjoy!
