Equality Pouch

The Equality Pouch is a modern catch-all with cultural significance. Made from Ugandan Barkcloth, this is a perfect pouch to carry your essentials on the go. Barkcloth is a venerated fabric with deep symbolic significance to the cultural and spiritual identity of Uganda for over 700 years. 

Made from the carefully harvested inner bark of the Mutuba tree (Ficus natalensis), barkcloth is produced in a long and laborious process using various types of wooden mallets with deep grooves to flatten the bark into supple cloth.

 Over a series of hours and days the bark is pounded out to an even cloth-like texture and develops its stunning signature colors that vary from terracotta to rust to deep cognac-brown.
