about our bags

Totes and Purses

In 2015, founder Fahari Wambura, started making tote bags and coin purses from her home in Ghent, NY. She sold them at farmers markets, flea markets and craft fairs throughout the Hudson River Valley. Within a few months, she introduced other products as per customer requests. This was the beginning of Fahari Bazaar.


Fahari still designs and makes clothing, bags, coin purses and now quilts at the shop in Chatham, New York. They are made from Kitenge, Kanga and Batiki. 


Our Kyondoo totes and purses are sourced from the Maasi market in Nairobi, Kenya. These bags are traditional to the Kamba tribe of central Kenya. They are made from sisal, and also from recycled yarn and plastic. It is our goal to source them directly from the artisans in uKambani.

Fahari Bazaar is a one-stop marketplace showcasing beautiful handmade products DESIGNED IN CHATHAM, NEW YORK AND made IN TANZANIa.

Founded with a commitment to producing the highest quality small batch products, Fahari Bazaar is creating SUSTAINABLE opportunities for SKILLED SEAMSTRESSES, TAILORS, artisans AND MAKERS.

These beautiful handmade products are made to last and be treasured.
