There are precise moments and certain objects that are not measured by the exact logic of metrics or matter.
It happens with those trips that last exactly 11 songs. You are sitting in the seat and you don't care when you arrive, you just wait for a new melody, to continue the music inside the car.
It also happens with everything whose meaning, no matter how exact it may seem, becomes printed, bland, deficient. The Rae, for example, has 18 meanings for the word house:
And so on up to eighteen in which there is no mention of the smell of your home, nor the feeling of peace, nor the luck of owning (in the less material sense of the word) a place in which to simply be.
If as a brand we had to choose that thing impossible to signify, an amulet we would say, an object that escapes obvious and logical meanings, those would undoubtedly be our carrycots.
"They are only bags" they will tell us. And the truth is that yes, they are only that.
Some artisan bags that in Kenya are called Kiondos.
Some carrycots made with sisal fiber and woven by hand. Some bags, yes, but they represent and transmit everything we like, that we try to defend and what we want to define us and that is difficult to verbalize.
Kenyan bags are artisan products, carefully handcrafted in Nairobi with sisal fiber and leather handle, 100% plastic free.
Some bags that smell of good weather, that are designed to last many (many) years and that are completely antagonistic to that denomination as cold as that of ' fast fashion ', because there is nothing “fast” about them.
Each model is completely unique, each one of them has been carefully woven and we are very happy that they are once again one of the cornerstones of this island: https://www.islavurma.com/collections/bags
There are precise moments and certain objects that are not measured by the exact logic of the metric. It happens sometimes with those trips that last exactly 11 songs or, maybe, two movies. You are in the seat until, suddenly, you realize that you do not mind getting there, you simply wait for one more melody or new sequence.
Things matter or not according to our feelings and we can see it every day. Sometimes happen with inaccessible and desired objects but also with daily life little pleasures: that cup of coffee, the pen always blue, the white shirt you bought in that exact place.
And if we, as a conscious brand, had to materialize an object that is an inexplicable treasure or, perhaps, an amulet, we would say without any doubt the handwoven handbags.
But they're “just bags”, many will say.
And yes, it is true, they are just simple handmade bags that in Kenya are called Kiondos.
Traditional handbags made of 100% sisal fiber and genuine leather handle. Not so long ago, Kenyan mothers carefully wove these bags as a gift for their daughters on their wedding day. That is why for us those bags represent and transmit everything that we love and we defend. In some way those bags define us as brand because they are not just bags, they are much more.
Handwoven bags: artisan product with African soul
Our sisal bags are handmade products, carefully crafted by hand in Nairobi with sisal fiber and leather handle, 100% plastic-free.
Our bags are perfect for the good weather and are designed to last many (many) years. They are the opposite of that cold and famous expression known as 'fast fashion', because there is nothing "quick" in them.
To create them, the sisal fiber bags need time, they need calm and, above all, they need people who love coffee slowly, long afternoons and the work well done.
And we are very happy to host them in our house, but also yours.<:>
