Orenda Handbag

If you love fashion with a conscious, you’ll love our handbags. 

We combine a little boho chic look with local weaving skills that result in truly unique designs you won’t find anywhere else. 
 
Each handbag is handcrafted in Rwanda and takes a skilled artisan three days to create. 
 
These strong and resilient women go on to invest in plots of land, buy goats that make milk her family can sell. Most importantly, these artisans grow a sense of strength and confidence that can never be taken away from her!
 
From one confident woman to another, you will look fierce with your new handbag all while being proud to be part of a story that is sure to stir your soul.

Artisans train to make our designs on a regular basis to meet the high quality standards we require. Designs can take a woman between 3 - 5 days to create depending on how intricate the weave is. Our team monitors production throughout the process to minimize corrections on a finished product, saving time and money.


Songa's designs are created using carefully selected natural materials that are locally sourced and eco-friendly. We use sisal plant, banana leaf, recycled paper, upcycled fabric and re-purposed cow horn that would otherwise end up in landfills. These materials ensure the highest quality design all while keeping in mind future generations who will inherit our planet.


'Songa' means 'the path forward' in Swahili. Each design the women make furthers them along the path of financial independence. "I thank those who buy my products because I was able to build a good house. I now have 12 pigs too!" - Harriette, paper bead artisan


"Songa is all about showcasing the woman artisan. They create beautiful designs from natural fibers!" Natalie@sustainablychic


We are proud to have been featured in some of the fashion industry's most respected magazines.
