My friend introduced me to Mayan Textiles. I was looking for a travel bag. This tote was great for the cruise we took -- strong, durable and great looking - perfect for those items I had to keep handy while traveling.


i just received my Maya Jade tote handbag and I love it! It is beautifully made and I will love using it! A wonderful surprise was the little cloth worry doll that came in the wrapping. I look forward to putting it under my pillow to forget my worries. thank you!
