medium size and feature a top zipper closure. Often a slouch or dip in the
center; a modern, casual silhouette. In regard to the history, the bag was
originally made to be reminiscent of the "bindle" sacks "hobos" carried over

: A kiondo is
a handwoven handbag made from sisal with leather trimmings. It is indigenous to
the Kikuyu and Kamba tribes of Kenya. These Kenyan weavers begin by stripping
the Sisal plant's outer layers, leaving the plant still able to grow. The weaver
uses threads from the pale colored layers, that have dried out for a day, to
make a bag. A design pattern is finalized. The weaver then boils the threads to
be used with water and dye sets the bag's colors. Now the weaving begins. Two
single threads are twined to form one strong thread. Many such threads are
woven. It is from these threads that a sisal bag is made. It takes between two
to three weeks to complete a bag. Most weavers have to look after their
households; therefore, weaving is done whenever they have the time. Sometimes
small beads and shells are woven into the kiondo.
