UNDANGAROU

Handbags anyone? We all know that no outfit is complete without the perfect handbag….and I have found the PERFECT handbag. Uniquely handcrafted and designed by an artist in Saint Louis, Senegal.

Sandrine Gomis has always had a love for fashion. She grew up in Paris, but her father is Senegalese. Three years ago she moved to Saint Louis to start a new life for her and her son. She started making handbags. Her brand name is “Undangarou” and you can find her online at http://www.undangarou.com. She mixes leather with wax prints and/or the hand woven fabrics found in Senegal. One of her inspirations is the Touareg jewelry. If  you look below at the very first handbag she made you can see the obvious inspiration within the leather.

Currently she does not have a shop but some of her bags are sold at a local hotel here in Saint Louis. Interested in one of her bags? Give her a call 77-806-96-40 or email her at contact@undangarou.com.
