This is exact type of basket Kenyan women have carried for decades to do their shopping. After they fill them to capacity, they carry them home on their heads, often for very long distances. We have added long leather straps for ease in carrying. This handmade Kenyan bag is knitted with yarn and sisal trimmed in leather. The sisal is not visible but used to strengthen the bag. These large bags are great carried in for a big amount of shopping or left in the car for collecting the days shopping around town.
