SENEGAL NATTE BAG - SOLID
The natte (“mat” in English) is ingrained in West African culture. In the village, it is the centerpiece of one’s home—its vibrant plastic threads radiate color onto the bare mud hut walls that surround it. The natte is a dining table for families to gather around and eat; it is a bench for friends to sit and chat; it is a bed to sleep on; a salon for women to gather and do each others’ hair; a cafe where men can sit and drink tea.
Mouhammet Kieta has created another way to use these nattes as a central, practical yet beautiful element to our daily lives. His bags are colorful, durable, versatile and created by his team of young apprentices in his Dakar workshop.
