This beautiful bag was hand made in Guatemala.
First, the fabric was hand woven by a skilled weaver. Each weaver learned to weave from other weavers in his or her family. It is a tradition that is handed down through the generations in Mayan villages. Then, the bag was made by another artisan that specializes in sewing. Such a great example of the artistry of the Mayan people.
It is with great pleasure that I source these bags from the artisans that make them. Purchasing one of the bags means that the weavers and the sewers have work.
The bag is 16-inches wide and 14-inches long. It is 5-inches deep. The leather handle drop is 13-inches, making it great to drape over your shoulder.
This bag has a zipper closure. It has three pockets on the inside. One has a zipper closure and the other two are great for carrying a cell phone and glasses. Simply a fantastic bag!

All the fabrics on this site are 100% cotton hand-dyed and hand-woven in Guatemala. The regular fabric is 36 inches wide. The fabric is not cut until you buy it. When you order multiple yards, you'll receive your fabric in a continuous piece.
Since these fabrics are hand woven there might be slight imperfections. These are characteristics that make the fabric stand out from machine made fabrics.
The corte pieces are different widths. The width of each one is in the description.
Fabrics should be prewashed before sewing with them. Edges of the fabric should be zigzagged to prevent fraying. Please follow the washing instructions you receive with your fabric. Some fabrics should be washed in cold water with a mild detergent. Others require Retayne. I include detailed instructions on how to use Retayne.
Retayne can be ordered on-line from any number of sites such as Joanne’s or Amazon.
