Details

The artisan women of Tactic, Guatemala hand-weave this baguette of cotton on the traditional backstrap loom. Mirian Otzin presents the bag, featuring stripes of sky blue over a body of navy. Multicolored geometric patterns that depict a procession of birds accentuate a black band. Carried like a wristlet or over the shoulder on a removable, adjustable strap, the bag opens with a magnetic snap to reveal a cotton lining with a zipper pocket.

"Beautiful Colors and Craftsmanship!"

This purse is bright, colorful, and makes me smile with delight whenever I pick it up! The artist is a superb crafts person. The size is perfect, and I like being able to adjust the strap length or carry the bag by the small side handle.

"Well made!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The cosmetic case is very well made. The only thing is that the colors are much darker then shown on my computer screen. The color is more of an orange and beige. Not at all rose as stated in the description. It is still a very nice cosmetic case but was a bit disappointed in the color that is on the design area of the cosmetic case. The zipper is a very sturdy one. Still very pleased with my purchase. The artisan did excellent work. Would recommend and buy from again.

"I suffered a terrible incident of sexual abuse, but I survived and have moved past it," she confides. Mirian continues to inspire us with her resilience. "When I was still a young girl, I learned the art of hand-weaving from my mother. I'm proud of preserving this ancient tradition and I'm passing it on to my children."

"I love this art because it represents my past and my present. Through our weavings, we communicate our cultural values. Preserving this beautiful artistic tradition has become a challenge since young women don't seem to be interested in weaving, so we need to promote it or else it will die out." Mirian first learned how to weave from her mother, and wishes to inspire others and pass this tradition down to new generations."
