We have added leather handles to this mini woven tote creating a uniquely textured, handcrafted basket made by women in Malawi originally made to carry farm produce to market.

Elephant grass is harvested locally, dried for three days, then dyed and twisted before being woven into this beautifully functional tote. These weaving skills have been passed down from one generation to the next, with women creating unique totes, varying slightly in shape, size, or color.


- Measurements: Tote: 10"H x 13"L x 9"W

- Leather Straps: 14" overall with opening 9.5"

** Please note: these are approximate measurements due to the unique and handmade qualities of each tote.
