Handwoven Nhatofo Bag

$204.00

We love the NHATOFO basket bag. A handy Shopper with leather handles and wooden handcrafted detailing.
African traditional knowledge mixed with modern design. Each piece is made by local women, using the traditional Sipatsi weaving technique that combines basketwork and geometry symbols from the Tonga culture to brilliant effect. Handcrafted with natural ilala palm fiber in different patterns and colors. Finished with leather straps.

Exact colours may differ from the image on screen. As this product is hand dyed, hand woven and made of natural fibres. Please be aware that hand dyeing can often be unpredictable, but we value these subtle shifts and changes in hue and embrace them. These beautiful variations mean patterns and colors will vary and that each piece is unique.

Dathonga’s handmade products are made entirely in Mozambique and can take up to a month for a weaver to complete, depending on the basketry techniques. Despite the difficulties of working in rural communities, Dathonga is committed to preserving and developing Mozambican craftsmanship and generating income for people with ancient skills in fair trade.
