‘It’s more important to be pretty on the inside’ is what we keep telling our 5 year old daughter. As for bags, it’s just as important, which is why we use hand-woven mudcloth dyed cotton to line many of our styles. But it felt a shame to keep the beautiful bogolan hidden away, so we’ve come up with a solution – reversible bags.
Here’s the first in a range of reversible bags. They come in different materials so you can change the look as the mood takes you. This is our leather and bogolan reversible shopper, with a bobble strap that means you can also adjust the length.
We’ve used black bogolan with a white SAHEL Design motif, but this bag is made to order so you could even choose a different colour from the many colours of mudcloth available.
Priced £175, available from our online shop. We’ve called it ‘Didi’ which means two in Fulfulde, because it is like two bags in one.
Here’s a video to demonstrate how to reverse the style and adjust the strap length. The soundtrack is ‘kudumdé’ (custom) by Desire Sankara.
