Lalibela Tote Bag
This tote bag is a classic stunner, and it's a Malena exclusive! Handcrafted in Ethiopia, with ethically sourced leather, it features a beautiful handwoven turquoise and white textile in the traditional Ethiopian "tibeb" diamond shape on the inside as well. We have also added a detachable tassel keychain to a keychain holder on the inside, that you can either keep in the bag or detach and use as a separate keychain. It also has a zipper pocket on the inside, and is simply the perfectly classic tote for daily use, for your laptop, essentials, or a glam night out. We named this beauty after one of our favorite magical places in Ethiopia as well.
