The artisans of Madagascar use an over and under traditional weaving style for these beautiful purses in various styles and vibrant colors with natural braided handles. The eye catching design is a flecked pattern with elegant slits on the upper sides.
Our products from Madagascar are woven from sedge, which was once considered by the locals an invasive weed. Because of our work, sedge is now grown as a cash crop creating environmentally rich marshes. The harvesting is done by cutting and is completely sustainable. The average time to weave a basket is about three days. These are handcrafted items so sizes are approximate and colors and patterns will vary.
