Fresh from Africa!

Fresh from Nairobi these re-purposed cement bags lined with kanga make oh-so stylish clutches. Great for storing make-up or going out, these mid-sized bags come fully lined with a beaded zipper. Custom made at the LC Education Centre by Rose and her single mom’s sewing club. They start with discarded cement bags found around the slum, line and trim them with kanga bought in Malindi by the Indian Ocean, sew in the zipper and add a single bead which is sourced from local markets around Nairobi.
Thoughtful and purposeful gifts. Now available at Bloom Artisan Boutique, 159 York Street in the Byward Market in Ottawa! Owner Lisa Wilson is putting them on display with all proceeds going to Project Chance Africa. Thank you Bloom! http://www.bloomartisan.ca
