Details

A bold Inca chacana star centers this handwoven shoulder bag by Zosimo Laura. Working on a traditional loom, he weaves the intricate motifs in red and orange wool. His inspiration comes from the legendary chasquis, Inca messengers, trained from a very early age to run long distances and traverse the seemingly impossible terrain of the Peruvian Andes. The versatile unlined bag closes with a capirona wood button.

I purchased the 'Sky Cross' rug and it looks even more beautiful in person. The colors are very vibrant and I love the warmth it brings to the room. Zosimo has created a quality and beautiful product and I hope to purchase more from him in the future.
