Practical and Stylish Handmade Bags

Our collection consists of handmade African bags that are perfect as shoulder bags, diaper bags, mombags, shoppers, work bags, travel bags, beach bags, and more. These bags fit perfectly on any stroller and feature a water-resistant interior, making them ideal for on-the-go use or a day at the beach. The constantly changing African prints ensure that each bag is a unique bag, something you won’t find easily elsewhere.


Our customers rave about our bags. People say the bags are super strong and have unique patterns that are truly different. The quality of the bags is so high that they often look even more beautiful in person and last for years. Customers receive many compliments on their bags and have trouble choosing because they are all so beautiful. They never want another bag because these are so convenient and can carry everything they need.

Craftsmanship and Uniqueness

Each handmade bag in our collection is crafted by talented craftsmen and women in Togo, West Africa. We work closely with local professionals to ensure that every product is of the highest quality. The fabrics we use change every season, which means our collection constantly evolves with new colors and patterns. This ensures that your chosen product is always unique and has a personal touch.

What further sets our bags apart is that we source all materials locally, from the fabrics to the fasteners inside the bags. This ensures that many people benefit from the production of the bags. Want to know who all contributes to making our bags? Check out the blog “Behind the Scenes”.

More Than Just Bags

Our journey began in September 2022 when we moved from the Netherlands to Togo, West Africa, to introduce our children to their Togolese heritage. The inspiration we gained here led to the founding of Wood & Cricket. For us, it’s not just a brand; it’s our Togolese adventure. Read more about it in our blog on how it all started.
