These amazingly colorful & creative bags are woven from recycled sweaters. The weavers buy sweaters en masse, then carefully unravel them to make bundles of yarn which are re-woven around a sisal framework to the designs of the weaver, resulting in a beautiful one-of-a-kind basket or bag.
Traditionally, a Kenyan mother would craft a kiondo for her daughter upon marriage. The Nifty Knits are soft and all have leather handles.
