A brand founded on producing products that are handmade using indigenous techniques that have been passed down through the generations. Instead of mass producing, Kayu is committed to working with cooperatives and artisans, many of whom have learned to weave and sew from their mothers. Each Kayu bag takes many days to make and each bears the mark of the individual artist. As an all woman team, Kayu is very passionate about ensuring that every woman has the right to develop to her fullest potential and earn a living wage. All Kayu bags are made by women and mothers, and weaving allows them to work from home, look after their children and also provides them with a source of income.
