NIARAA BAGS® TELL A STORY
Niaraa Bags® idea started with a compliment, “now… that bag has a story!” It turned out that the bag had a story.
THE HANDS BEHIND THE CRAFT
The hand-crafted woven baskets/bags, known as Bolga baskets from the Upper East Region of Ghana, have played a more significant role in putting Bolgatanga on the world map. The basket industry is creating jobs and minimizing rural-urban migration. This industry is primarily composed of women weavers. Through weaving, they are taking charge of their future.
EMBRACING HAND-CRAFTED IMPERFECTION
This collection is hand made from 100% cowhide leather, elephant grass, printed and woven ankara, and neatly interwoven to perfection to make a statement! Because they are hand-crafted, the vintage look is expected. For instance, two browns will never be identical. We flaunt the perfect rough edges— this makes Niaraa Bags® stand out. The unedged leather, the naturally dried grass will soften and change color with time and fit into your lifestyle to tell your unique story.
