The Adombila is a chic Market Basket with a vivid orange pop of colour on a navy motif with navy leather handles. The basket is approximately 44cm wide by 33cm tall excluding handles. Each piece is woven by hand and takes two to three days to make by a women’s collective in Northern Ghana. There are small variations in the patterns due to the unique talent of each weaver. They are robust and perfect for a trip to the market, picnic, beach or shopping.
Every bag you buy will help end period poverty
Access to sanitary products causes girls around the world to lose countless school days each year. For each Mmaa bag that you purchase, a girl or young woman will receive a reusable sanitary kit (one pad holder, three washable pad liners, soap, six pairs of underwear and washing bag) that will help keep girls in school and help end the shame and silence around period poverty. The reusable sanitary kits are made by seamstresses within the collective therefore promoting another stream of income while also giving back to the community.
