Details

Whimsical male and female figures are crafted as the happy finishing touches of the multicolored braid which accents this 100% cotton shoulder bag from Nelson Hernandez and Wendhy Salones of Mexico. The married artisans craft the delightful tote's material using a traditional backstrap loom; thread in pastel yellow, carrot, apple green, and pale blue is incorporated into a cantaloupe-colored background to form the textile's patterned design. The ample interior is lined with nylon fabric in a peach color and closes with a zipper. An additional zippered interior compartment comes in handy for organizing smaller items such as keys or identification.

"This Sling Purse is Wonderful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sling purse is just wonderful! I love the colors, orange and cream, the weaving is very tight, it is well made, and the braided strap just sets it off perfectly. The Salones do very good work, and I will enjoy this bag for years.

This is a gift I sent to my nephew who just moved into his own place in Limassol. He appreciates unique accents and when I showed him this, he told me that it would look very special on his table.

"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.
