Light weight, versatile bag
I travel a lot and carrying a leather bag can get very heavy at times. This bag is beautiful! I love the color and the design! It is well constructed and has 3 zippered compartments. The strap adjusts allowing the bag to be carried cross body or over the shoulder. Overall. the bag allows for maximum versatility.
I bought this and another similar one by the same artist (earth and sky) and I love them both. The fabric has heft and appears to be durable, and the woven straps are thick and strong. It is unlined but the fabric is thick enough to support wallet, change purse, eyeglass case, cosmetic bag. Very happy with purchase.
I LOVE THIS BAG!
Im not a woman who likes purses. As a matter of fact, I have been fighting for years of really buying a nice one because I cant stand them. And beyond that I dont like commercial trends like LV bags etc. When I found this site I was SO excited to find my first Adult purse on here. This bag is So much better than it even looks in photos. The photos dont do it justice. Worth every penny and then some.
The name Cojolya is taken from an ancient Maya settlement. Legend recounts it was here that the Tzutujil Maya artists and sculptors bought their creations to life.
