SAHEL- New to FAIR

New to Fair:

SAHEL Design bags!

hereThese gorgeous new bags have a just as gorgeous story behind them. SAHEL began in the desert of Burkina Faso where the Fulani originate. Horse lovers by tradition, Fulani people used to dress their steeds in vibrant tassles to accentuate the horse’s movement and turn heads. Traditional Fulani horse harnesses have strong braided straps which are hand woven by highly skilled artisans.

All SAHEL bags and accessories employ this unique Fulani skill, some of the bags are made in Burkina Faso. Most are made in Devon, England using sustainably sourced leather and suede. All of them incorporate tassels or hand braided straps from the north of Burkina Faso.

Adhering to Fair trade principles, SAHEL invest into the people who make it possible to create their beautiful bags, providing better access to health care, primary education and clean water.
