Suzanna Haller formed Ngiri-giri bags in 2007 whilst working alongside a disabled workshop in her hometown of Mombasa in Kenya. Using some of their ideas and styles, she added designs and fabrics of her own, to create the Ngiri-giri style.  Suzanna work very closely with the disabled workers in the workshop, creating employment opportunities for the local community.

Ngiri-Giri has worked with the Bombolulu Workshop and Cultural Centre in Mombasa since 2007. The workshop has more than 100 people working with a variety of abilities and help men and women artisans overcome their physical limitations, empowering them economically and socially to become fully integrated members of their communities.

Suzanna oversees every stage of the production process ensuring excellent quality of workmanship from start to the finished bag, using local material – canvas, leather and the bright kanga material all of which is hand selected.

We love these bags and this story of hope and empowerment; leaving us wanting one of these unique and gorgeous bags under the Christmas tree this year!
