  Traveling through Kenya during the month of January, I had the great pleasure to explore different markets, meet shop owners, and get a feeling for Kenya fashion and design.

    I kept seeing these large, fabric totes in beautiful colors and cool patterns and I had to have one. I tracked down a market that sold these and...went a little crazy - I fell in love with all of them! After coming to my senses and the realization that I had very limited luggage space (mainly because I was carrying back so many fabrics for the next Ovid capsule, be on the look out!), I could only bring back a few of these bags.
