Description

Small bag with zipper for pencils, cosmetic utensils and all other things handy when underway. This bag is made by women in the countryside in Namibia. Through embroidery they tell their story and process their experiences and problems. Once a week, the women come together to evaluate each others products, to hand it in and to fetch new fabric and thread. Embroidery can be done everywhere; while you wait at the well, while talking with your neighbour or even in the waiting room at the hospital. It is harder when the sun sets, so many women now have a small solar chargeable light. This way they can now work in the evening without being afraid that fire or sparks will destroy their work. Size: 12cm x 20cm. Available in navy with aqua look embroidery or in grey with white embroidery. Village embroidery motifs vary depending on what story the individual Penduka embroiderer has to tell (village scenes, fetching water, Katutura street scenes....). Durable material, 100% cotton, machine-washable. For other specific colour/ size variants or personalised motifs please contact us.
