Handmade USA Flower Purse Tote, African Wax Cloth Black Multicolor

  • $69.00

This unique, colorful shoulder bag is made from African wax cloth and handmade in USA. The fabric was hand delivered to me direct from Tanzania by my sister Denise. She and her husband are missionary in Tanzania (see group photo). The people of Tanzania are poor and the women make most of their clothing using wax cloth material. Denise purchased the fabric from a roadside shop in the village shopping area. The fabric is a waxed cloth and is certified for authenticity.

The wax coating gives the fabric a stiffness, protective coating and light shine. This one of a kind bag fabric traveled on six planes to get to America.

I hope that you love my purses and handbags. If you purchase one of my African wax cloth bags we ask that you share the story of it's origin with your friends.

Glenn and Denise Ellerbe, are currently working a project to providing water wells for several villages who do not have clean water. My goal selling purses is to donate to the well project. (check her out of Facebook)
