Our fun clutch bag is made from traditional Kenyan kanga cloth by the women of Jorova Crafts. Kanga is the traditional Swahili fabric of Kenya, and Kenyan women use kangas for dresses, skirts, bags, curtains, table cloths, scarves, and over 100 other uses.
Jorova Crafts was founded by three women living in the slums of Nairobi -- Josephine, Rosemary, and Eva -- hence the name Jorova. Determined to make a better life for their families, the women cleaned houses to save enough for one shared sewing machine and a small market stall. Jorova has grown to employ several women in the Nairobi slums and has become a primary support for the women and their families. Today Jorova provides employment for several single mothers and widows. Jorova Crafts is made up of groups both in the slums of Nairobi and the peri-urban rural areas surrounding the city.
