Details

Luscious shades of purple, fuchsia, lilac and pink bring bold elegance to a messenger bag adorned with black concentric diamonds. From Yama Aj Chixot Artisan Group, the bag is sewn together by one team, with a cotton fabric woven by another team of experts on the pedal loom. The fully lined shoulder bag has a pocket under the flap and a loop on one side to knot the strap to the desired length. The flap closes with a magnetic button, and the bag itself with a zipper.

The fabric for this bag is cut from a larger piece woven on a pedal loom, therefore the order of colors and the positioning of the patterns my vary slightly, resulting in a unique piece.

"Beautiful colors, sturdy and versatile"

This cotton messenger bag is my new main purse and goes everywhere with me. It has a zipper and magnet for extra-secure closing and the strap is adjustable for the best fit for you. Theres plenty of room inside and an extra outside pocket for things I need to grab quickly. Im happy to have such a beautiful handcrafted purse with pinks and purples as its eye-catching colors. It also makes me feel good that Ive supported a womens artisan group in Guatemala wth this purchase.

"Nice scarf"

My wife tell me she would have given the card a 5-star rating if it had been just a little bit softer. Perfect length, nice weave.
