The story

We fell in love with these bags because of their sheer beauty and the story behind them. They are made from old sailcloth called “tanga”. The weathered sailcloth is from Dhows, typical sailing boats of Kenya. Wind, sun, rain, seawater and many years on the Indian Ocean have weathered these tangas to be real pieces of art. Fishermen of Lamu sew these cloths into a bag and paint them with the words LOVE, a STAR or a HERAT.

The ALI LAMU Washbag can be used as a 'bag' in a weekend bag, a toiletry bag, make-up bag or purse. Needless to say that every bag is unique and entirely hand-made. They are firm, waterproof and machine-washable at 40°.
