Weaving is a tradition in Kenyan culture. All Airi weaving is done by an all-women initiative from the rural villages of Machakos County, Kenya. The bags are made out of sisal which is grown locally. The fiber from the sisal plant is extracted by a process known as decortication where leaves are crushed, beaten and brushed away by a rotating wheel so that only the fiber remains which is then rolled to twine, dyed and woven
