Fashion. love, Africa

Fashion. love, Africa features hand woven totes constructed from plastic bags gathered by female residents living in the garbage slum of Nakuru, Kenya. Most women who live in the slum are either mothers or grandmothers and are the victims of rape, HIV, and abuse. Each bag is purchased directly from the woman who constructed it, allowing her a consistent source of income.
