Responsible Raffia Handbags by Ma'mitons

As if you needed an excuse to buy the perfect beach bag, these raffia beauties by Ma'mitons are both eco-friendly and socially responsible. The brainchild of Cameroon native Priscilla Njankou, Ma'mitons partners with skilled artisans from all over the Cameroon, providing them with job opportunities and fair pay.

Each bag is designed my Njankou and then handcrafted by a Cameroonian artisan of raffia, a highly sustainable and readily available material made from palm leaves. Thanks to the natural properties of raffia, Ma'mitons bags promise to be both soft and durable (in addition to being quite the lookers, of course).

To compliment its bags, Ma'mitons is now expanding its offerings to raffia sandals with a campaign on Indiegogo. A $55 donation scores you a pair of your choice, so head on over if you're interested. Otherwise, you can purchase handbags at mamitons.com.

Isn't guilt-free shopping grand?
