Kenyans can’t believe how much this ‘kikapu’ is worth
Kenyans online have been shocked by the price tag of a straw tote bag that closely resembles a Swahili kikapu.
A user posted a photo of the designer bag and its offer price of Sh138,148 ($1,338) eliciting many reactions.
The designer tote bag is woven using straws similar to those used to weave baskets and mats in Kenya.
The bag that is designed by Dolce & Gabbana has crystal embellishments and a red fringe.
