Inspiration/provenance
The shape of this bag is loosely based on the traditonal leather pouch used by the Maa people
To collect honey comb, I love the designs painted on the hyde shields used by the warriors
There are also very similar designs carved into the wooden shields used by the Kikuyu tribe
We applique the design onto the bag keeping it 2 tone
Entirely hand made, including hand cut fringe
