ARWAY (Ah-way) means beautiful in KRU a local language in Liberia. The KRUS are not unique to Liberia, as they can be found in different communities around West Africa, with slight variation in the language. ARWAY bags are design, and handmade by Liberian Artisans. Our staff travels around West Africa to handpick cloths, skins, and wood that make our bags unique. Since the beginning of time Africans live of the land, we cannot stray from tradition, but find means of modernizing and helping our tribes keep with tradition. Thus, we buy directly from local hunters, contributing to their livelihoods. We believe it is important Liberia continues to maintain a low carbon emission record; we strive to use materials that were produced locally, or were recycled when feasible.
1. All items are unique and handmade, meaning no two items will be exactly alike. Interior/exterior ankara of bags will always differ per bag, but styles remain the same. 2. Actual colors can be slightly different than shown in picture. 3. Please feel free to ask any questions before you purchase to ensure good experience on both sides. 4. In the rare case where two or more customers check-out the same item at the same time, we will service on a first come first serve basis. 5. Since this is a small business, all sales will be considered as-is and final - but we will be happy to discuss any issues and try to find an amicable solution where feasible.
