Please note that each bag is unique and the placement of the fabric design is different and wonderful on each item.

Alanga Nganbe

The artist has painted hand-woven string bags as the design, they are often referred to as ‘dilly bags’. These bags were essential items carried by Alanga’s ancestors. Natural plant fibres were spun on the upper leg to a double-ply and then looped to make the bags. The detail in her images is beautiful and the looped weaving can be clearly seen.
