Description

Ali Lamu – Light Blue Star Motif Weekender

Ali Lamu bags are handmade and hand painted on the small island of Lamu, Kenya.
These bags are made of beautiful old cotton sailing canvas, known locally as ‘Tanga’. The sailcloth comes from the traditional fishing boats of Kenya more commonly known as Dhows. These sailcloths have been naturally weathered by the sea and sun and are themselves, works of art.
Each piece is stitched, washed and painted by hand and made 100% by heart!
