Purchasing a Kiondo bag has a tangible, positive impact on families. It only takes the sale of three to four bags to feed a family for several months. Each bag is perfect to use for everyday purposes or to give as a gift to a loved one. This is one of the reasons why we are so pleased to be able to partner with Tembo Trading Education Project to offer Kiondos to you.
Currently in the small village of Kamba in Kenya, eighty percent of families are supported by the sale of these bags.
Traditionally, Kiondo bags have been made by mothers and given away to their daughters upon marriage. With a sisal frame and woven with brightly colored yarn, Kiondos are both durable and beautiful. These bags are so strong they often last a lifetime.
As you continue your Christmas shopping this year, consider purchasing a Kiondo bag for someone you love. The person receiving the beautiful bag will not only enjoy your gift, a family will have a very fundamental need met.
Currently our Kiondo bags are on sale as a part of our Cyber Monday special, which ends on Sunday, December 8th!
