|Tuareg Tote - Agadez Envelope - Approximately 18 Inches Across - #68322|
Approximately 18" Across x 12" Tall (plus handle) x 1" Deep
Palm leaves are woven together to create strong and flexible 'envelope' totes that have a wide opening and lay flat. The strap is over 12 inches tall.
- You will receive a basket nearly identical to the one pictured above, but please keep in mind that each one is hand-woven and varies slightly.
- The braided palm shoulder strap is semi-rigid and durable.
- These palm leaf totes come from a nomadic tribe often in Niger.
- A "flat-plaited" weaving technique is used to make these sturdy and useful bags. The palm must be harvested at just the right time to get the proper color, flexibility, and strength.
