"Authenitc from Cusco"

I just got back from Cusco, Peru. I bought beautiful pillow covers but wanted a few more authentic handwoven items. I KNOW this purse is authentic, and it is well made. I visited weaving cooperatives and recognize the natural colors and designs. It has a sturdy lining and a nice inside pocket with zipper. I use it for my everyday purse, I like the size. I dont like a big purse. It is important to me that the weavers of the Peruvian Andes get support to continue weaving. Tourists have not returned to this area and these traditions will be lost. Plus it is a beautiful purse with rich colors.
