The perfect everyday bag
We tested every canvas we could get our hands on to find a fabric with the right combination of durability and comfort — not too stiff, but not too stretchy. The winner? A Kenyan canvas made in a plant owned by three sisters with an exceptional commitment to their workers.
Made from 100% East African cotton, you can walk happily knowing your tote supports Kenyan farmers, too.
Kenyan fashion is all about patterns and colors. Subtlety isn’t normally our thing. These shoes though? They wear their Kenyan pride on the inside.
Our Nairobi Tote's lining is printed by hand with our Ubuntu tribal pattern, so you’ll never forget where they came from.
36° East Hand-beaded tab
Maai Mahiu is located at 1° South, 36° East. We embed that angle into each Nairobi Tote in our beaded tabs so that our customers are reminded where their shoes are made and by whom.
