Handmade by: Mariatu Koroma (the weaver) & Alusine Bangura (the tailor). Designed by the Green Giraffe.
Production process: The cotton is sourced from the second hand market in Freetown. The weaver visits the second-hand market and buys sweaters, blankets, and other items made from cotton threads. The weaver then disassembles the knitwear back into the cotton yarn threads and reuses it weaving it by using the traditional Kontri Cloth method. The woven pieces are then finally sawn into a pouch. Interior lined with poplin cotton fabric.
Care Instructions: Due to the handwoven nature, gentle spot cleaning is recommended.
Kontri Cloth is entirely handmade. Imperfections such as discolourations, pattern variations, or pulls at seams where panels are sewn together should be expected. These unique features are not considered defects.
*Items are all one of a kind and not exactly alike*
