Description

The large bags vary a bit in size and will fit three to four kalimba boxes. Some of them will fit four Alto kalimba boxes.? A sansula in its cardboard box, wood case, or black padded bag will also fit in a large bag.? Louise’s?budget bags are as beautiful and well-made as the quilted ones, but they lack the extensive quilting work, making them less protective of your kalimba. They are significantly less expensive, however.

These kalimba bags are designed, hand sewn and quilted by Louise Sloman-Fuller, who worked for 20 years for African Musical Instruments (AMI) the makers of Hugh Tracey kalimbas. Louise, who has been an artisan for many years,?recently?retired from AMI and is now applying her craft to creating bags that perfectly fit Hugh Tracey kalimbas.

Each bag fastens with a button, and each bag has a simple, strong shoulder strap.

Each bag is unique, which means only one looks exactly like the cover photo. Photos of additional bags are also included, and you can ask for a bag by its letter or number. I will cross the letters off of the photos as they sell. (Yes, I am going to great lengths to make this work for Louise – but after her two decades of faithful service to AMI, I am happy to help her out in this way.)
