I’ve been wearing this bag for years. Bought it in Barcelona. I kept its label, loved the fair trade project behind. That label has been over my studio table for a long time. When we decided to open the Behomm Shop, we thought: now… let’s support this beautiful project.
Sara García Betorz worked in Mozambique for 3 years. There, she discovered in the south of the country women making baskets and started ordering a few to bring them back to Barcelona and sell to support the community.
She ended up creating the ngo Khetu Khamba.
She is moved by a passion for crafts and a daily commitment to support and empower the artisan communities to preserve their cultural heritage and their access to decent work.
Now there are more than 30 artisans working on this project, mainly women. Sara keeps her job as an environmentalist and at the same time runs Khetu Khamba. Bravo Sara!
The Fisherman bag is the traditional Mozambican bag for fisherman to carry what they fish. As vegans, we hesitated to add it, a bag for carrying fish? There are communities that can only make a living with the resources they have in their area, by the sea… fish.
Thrilled with all the products they weave. True jewels.
