GoWoman Africa’s curated online fashion destination has re-stocked its Burkina Brag Bag ‘the most wanted fashion accessory of 2017’. Shop.GoWomanAfrica.com is the only place online where you’ll ever see the limited edition handmade bag that comes from Mali by way of Burkina Faso.
The artisans that make the Burkina Brag Bag are expert weavers, and leather smiths. Their techniques have been passed on by apprenticeship for generations.
To get to Burkina from Ghana you must first pass Paga in Bolgatanga, the home of the sacred Crocodile Pond. Those who walk on the backs of crocodiles get bragging rights.
If you carry this bag one can only assume that you crossed the border into Burkina by land, and over crocodiles to catch you a Brag Bag. They are a beautiful and timeless statement piece. You’ll be seen from a mile off!
