Suede Crossbody Bag
A mashup of traditional crafts and modern techniques, this classic Suede Crossbody Bag is made in Nairobi, Kenya.
The designer and her small team make each bag by hand: David cuts the leather pieces, Dorothee and Theresa sew each bag together, Leonard makes the recycled brass hardware across town and Jacob takes care of all the finishing touches. Together, the team completes about five bags a day.
With sustainability in mind, the workshop runs on solar energy three days a week and the cow leather they work with is a byproduct of the food industry.
