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.
Beautifully crocheted shoulder bag
This bag is well-made and beautiful. The hand-work is flawless. It is medium sized and perfect. Many thanks to the artist who made it!
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.
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.
