Kazi Limbag was made for every individual who needs a backpack every day for work-related activities, it’s just a perfect size: not too big, not small either, just perfect. It will help out with what you need in your day. Your purse, your work stuff, very loose; just a carrier of what you need. Kazi Limbag has a half-round base shape of 12 inches in length, 16 inches in height, and 5 inches thick.

The interconnected weaved patterns are inspired by the traditional Rwandan mat called “Ikirago”

Kintsugi limbags are made with the primary intention of being environmentally conscious and making the earth greener by putting harmful waste to use. Our artisans repurpose the dumped pairs of jeans into world-class quality bags. Denim fabrics (fabrics that make jeans) are one of the least eco-friendly clothing fabrics. Though they are harmful, jeans remain the cornerstone of just about any wardrobe. Hundreds of millions of them are produced and sold every year, that’s why AFLIMBA took the initiative of extending the life of their waste by repurposing them into bags. PURCHASING A KINTSUGI LIMBAG IS SAVING THE PLANET ONE BAG AT A TIME.

AFLIMBA partnered with unemployed women in low-income households to be foot soldiers to collect pairs of jeans that are no longer worn from door to door starting in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda.

The word “Kintsugi” comes from the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold to imply a metaphor for embracing your flaws and imperfections.
