Knapsacks are made of traditional eastern African fabric called Kitenge. They are lined with donated fabric for added durability. Great for a day hike, use it as a gym bag, for a quick shopping trip or a walk in town. Makes a great gift.
Approx. Size 14”x18”. Please note that the size may vary +/-2″, please let us know if you’re looking for a specific size and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs. Assorted colors, beautiful Kitenge fabric. Contact us if you’d like to see patterns available.
Each drawstring bag has a small pocket and a label that is signed by the seamstress who made it.
The income our participants receive from one bag is equal to 3 days of income earned from casual labor. Through our sewing program, participating seamstresses earn a sustainable income, while they learn basic business skills, with the goal of reaching financial independence.
