History of the Kiondo:(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiondo)
A kiondo is a handwoven handbag made from sisal with leather trimmings. Woven mostly by women and mothers, they begin by stripping the Sisal plant's outer layers, leaving the plant still able to grow. The weaver uses threads from the pale coloured layers, that have dried out for a day, to make a bag. A design pattern is finalized. The weaver then boils the threads in water and dye sets the bag's colours.
It takes between two to three weeks to complete a basket depending on the size. Most weavers have to look after their households; therefore, weaving is done whenever they have the time.

Please note that colours may vary slightly due to the colour display settings of your screen and photography lighting.
