Ali Lamu

Hand Made Bags From Kenya

Ali Lamu is a small company in Kenya making bags from our

hands that are always with the heart.

We create bags, decor, and art from old sailcloth known as

‘tanga’, which come from dhows, local sailboats used at the

East African coast. Wind, sun, rain and seawater and many

years on the Indian Ocean have weathered these tanga into

real pieces of art. Each piece is made by hand, with love.

Your purchase helps provide needed jobs to the small

community of Lamu and also to keep our oceans clean.

Together as a team we bring you the love and joy of Ali Lamu

on your doorstep.
