Product information

Karibu bags are completely handmade from 100% dried "Milulu" grass, an environmentally friendly renewable resource and high quality leather. “Milulu” grass is harvested near streams, then cleaned and dried before being expertly woven by the artisans. Tanzanian leather is added with care to ensure the durability and quality of the bags. The colorings are made using traditional natural extracts of roots and leaves, adding an authentic, organic touch to each piece.
