Medium and large tote bags with two short handles are both fashionable and practical.

Weaving together timeless Nordic design and Kenyan handcrafts, each unique item is work of hands and hearts: beautiful, extremely durable and easy to keep clean.

Material: Sisal and recycled plastic with short leather handles.

We are certified member of World Fair Trade organization and each of our bags is signed by the artisan who made it.

The Swahili word for “kiondo” means basket.

Kiondo bags and baskets are a Kenyan tradition, weaved with a special traditional technique. The knowledge of weaving is passed on from one generation to another. Each piece is handmade by skilled women in rural villages - our Team Kenya.

The core idea behind Mifuko stands in its name: in Swahili, ‘mifuko’ means pocket. With Mifuko, everyone is left with something valuable in their pocket. For the artisans in Kenya, it’s fair pay, empowerment, and less dependence on unpredictable farming as a source of income. For Mifuko customers (that’s you!), it’s a unique piece that weaves together classic Nordic design, traditional Kenyan handcraft, and the story of a strong, independent woman whose signature you can find on the label.
