Natural straw is patiently hand split and woven in Ghana to form a rich vocabulary of 33 original shapes: the AKAMAE straw bag family.
For this new edition the series is enriched with a new shape, the Walnut Crossbody bag N°33. Its medium size, double handle and closure system makes it a great everyday basket.
This year we went full on colors: we dressed a selection of Akamae bags with delicate allover patterns, in black & natural or vivid red & purple graphic combinations. The perception of the straw material is transformed and brings basketry into a different perspective where shapes, patterns and colors speak of innovative craftsmanship.
