Sack Kintsugi Limbag

Fr45,000

A 12 inches wide, 16 inches height, and 6 inches thick masterpiece, the sack limbag was inspired by the strength of regular food packaging sacks and transformed to bring creativity, quality with a touch of long-lasting strength to our regular daily bags. Give it a try and it will last you a lifetime.

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.

Description

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.
