The use of plastic bags as carrier bags, shopping bags was banned some time back by our government. This was a step in the right direction for a better and waste free environment.
The reusable bags are hand crafted from sustainable materials and up cycled cotton
With the ban on plastic bags is what led into my business adventure Last year June. I was looking for a bag I could carry everyday, that fits into my everyday handbag. The materials were sourced from within Kenya , with a variety of different colors to choose from. This started my little project and soon each bag became a unique piece and was loved by those who came into contact with them here in Kenya.
Finding an opportunity to grow this into an even more sustainable project has commenced . In addition to the upcycled bags were are now lining them with Ankara fabric to create a more aesthetically appealing bag not just for the market , supermarket or, beach but every day use. The Ankara fabric gives it a more African touch.
One way of giving back to the community is to donate part of our proceeds from the sale of each bag to a local charity that work directly with families in need.
Reusable produce bags are becoming more common nowadays with stores and farmers markets going plastic free. The Market Bags are the perfect solution for transporting your purchased items from the store to your house.
