Details

Compact and perfectly sized for wearing across the body, this sling bag from artisans Nelson Hernandez and Wendhy Salones of Santo Tomás Jalieza in Oaxaca, Mexico, is handcrafted from 100% cotton. Lines of spring green, pale blue, carrot, pink, and mauve contrast against the main vanilla color in the purse's loom-woven material; the attractive strap is braided using thread in the same vivid hues. It's easy to organize your belongings by using the nylon fabric-lined interior for larger items such as a cell phone and the exterior compartment for smaller objects like keys and lip balm; both of these sections close with zippers. The flap closes with a magnetic snap.

"Appreciation of Latin American essence"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a gift for a Cypriot friend who I met for the first time this past week. For her to have a unique hand made addition to where she will be residing, has touched her heart in more ways than can be described. She has never owned a unique piece of art from Latin America and the region;.in Europe, to have a precious reminder that will each day will mean so much more. Im happy to share our traditions with those who know art and the hands that made it.
