Whether used as a clutch or a crossbody bag, this 100% unique handbag from Blackfly in Nairobi will turn heads.
Ruth Abade started Blackfly by designing women's jackets using African print fabric. Soon, she accumulated a colorful mosaic of fabric scraps and began using them to create accessories. Upcycling quickly became a passion. Now Blackfly recycles leather from old jackets, buttons, zips, straps and buckles from Mitumba -- Swahili for "bundles," used to refer to the large plastic-
wrapped packages of used clothing donated by people in wealthier countries.
