Here are two featured pieces:

NaweKenya1

This is a beautiful handmade item that has two comfortable leather handles. I love the colours on it and it looks great. It’s very spacious and practical. It’s made by hand in Kenya using Masai beadwork on canvas and leather. The interior is a very colorful Kenyan Kanga, 100% cotton fabric, with an inside pocket.  It would look fabulous with just about any outfit and you can also take it with you for short day trips.

2. Mokabi Beaded Belt (shown below)NaweKanya2

This handmade belt looks absolutely awesome. It combines 100% cow leather with vegetable dyes, glass beads and recycled bronze buckle. It can fit just about any garment and the tribal blocks add a very unique touch to the piece. I have never seen anything quite like this before and it would for sure be a great addition to your wardrobe.

Definitely check out the shop and see what other pieces they have in store for you. Happy Shopping! 🙂
