CANVAS BEADED TOTE BAG

These beautiful bags are hand made by a Women’s Group that was establised in 2009, with the aim of employing and empowering the women of the small Kenyan town of Gilgil by utilising their fine needlework and artistic skills, probably learnt from their mothers at an early age. The new venture started with around 45 women who were recruited by word of mouth.  They were given extra training to develop their skills, and six years on now employ around 30 women, providing them with independence and security in a town with limited opportunities.
