Inspired by traditional textiles, the body of this clutch is decorated with black diamond motifs over an eggshell body, incorporated by hand with cotton fibers on a foot pedal loom. Representing local Guatemalan artisans, the Aj Quen Association presents the handbag. It opens with a zipper to a cotton-lined interior with two inner open pockets for storing small items.
The Aj Quen Association is one of the oldest weaving associations in Guatemala. It was founded as a non-profit development entity in 1989 through the efforts of six different artisan groups from various regions of the country. These groups came together to help preserve their cultural identity and to better market their art.
