Custom made reusable shopping bags

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.

My name is Appelles Kireru, and I’m the Proprietor of The Crafter's Agency. I taught myself how to crochet in 2014, and I have been hooked ever since. In 2020, I finally conquered my fear of knitting, and I haven’t looked back since. But crochet is still my favorite! I also love to sew small projects. I make Artisan soap, design and make jewelry from time to time. I do my fair share of cooking and love to bake, too.
