This natural leather tote backpack is great for carrying all your essentials. Nubuck leather has shades that vary and naturally distress with age. Each bag is handcrafted in Kenya by local artisans. All materials are raw, up cycled and locally sourced in Kenya.
Meyelo believes in empowering artisans with sustainable income through their craft and providing artisans with a source of fair trade income, support for their community, and a global platform for their work. Many skilled artisans have limited access to education and economic opportunity. Meyelo provides training programs in business practices to help artisans ensure their understanding of the global market. Currently, they employ over 80 artisans in Kenya.
Meyelo permanently invests in the future of the artisans and their communities by giving a portion of the proceeds back to the growth of the artisan small businesses. With every purchase, you are helping provide for their families and support their community. The long-term investment in helping others is the foundation of Meyelo’s business model. They work in community development with Maasai villages and provide access to education, water, farming co-ops and medical needs. They also empower women, girls and their communities with sustainable programs. 10% of every purchase goes directly to A Voice Is Heard to support sustainable community development projects in Kenya.
