Salama guys! The Tanala are the “people of the forest” that inhabit the forests of the South-Eastern part of Madagascar. The Tanala bag is inspired by the vibrant colors of the forests’ 10,000 native species, of which around 90% is only endemic to our Madagascar. The large bag combines a mix of different weaving methods. It includes hardware snaps and has a thin wire so that you can give it the shape you want! The Tanala is lined with 2nd 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 takes almost 5 days to weave. We hope you enjoy it! Made by Georgette.
