Bebe-Maki Tanala Bag
Salama guys! The Bebe Maki’s name is inspired by our most recognized lemur, the ring-tailed lemur, also known as the Maki. Though on the verge of extinction, there are a total of 105 species of lemurs found only in Madagascar! The beauty of this raphia product is the combination of weaving techniques used throughout the bag. The Bebe Maki has a thin wire so that you can give it the shape you want! It includes hardware snaps and it’s lined with second-hand fabric bought from the local market. Each piece has a pocket inside and is unique because each bag has a different lining depending on local market availability. This bag took 2 days and a half to weave. We hope you enjoy it! Made by Hary.
