Featured Reviews on Central American Purple Hand Woven Handbags
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.
Beautiful colors, sturdy and versatile
This cotton messenger bag is my new main purse and goes everywhere with me. It has a zipper and magnet for extra-secure closing and the strap is adjustable for the best fit for you. Theres plenty of room inside and an extra outside pocket for things I need to grab quickly. Im happy to have such a beautiful handcrafted purse with pinks and purples as its eye-catching colors. It also makes me feel good that Ive supported a womens artisan group in Guatemala wth this purchase.
