Colorful stripes decorate this Guatemalan jewelry case, accented with amethyst purple. Representing a collective of indigenous women, the Yama Aj Chixot Artisan Group hand-weaves the bag from cotton on the foot pedal loom. It unrolls with a magnetic snap to reveal a fabric lattice for hanging bracelets and chains. The zipper opens to reveal a lined pouch, perfect for storing smaller jewelry pieces.

""Amethyst Berry" Striped Jewelry Case"

The colors on this are even better in person. Vibrant jewel tones that just pop. The feel of the weave is smooth and thick. It will not thin, nor rip easily. This bag is great for carrying essential oils. This is a thoughtfully designed and executed bag. I finally figured out that the two straps can also be used for securing it inside a pack! Extra care was taken in sewing an extra piece of material on top of the large magnetic button - otherwise the cumbersome size would be sticking out of the material, as well as wearing through it quickly. Makes a big difference in quality. Thank you for such care and detail, it will travel through many years and adventures.

"Vibrant and sturdy"

The colors are even brighter in person than in the photos, believe it or not. The cloth feels very strong and well-stitched, and while I havent had the opportunity to travel with it yet, its very compact, so its perfect for saving space even by just sitting on my dresser.

"Perfect design"

This is just what I need for travel. The design allows you to bring as much or as little jewelry as you want and it takes minimal space in your carry-on.
