Details

Inspired by the iconography of the pre-Hispanic Moche, Chimu, and Inca cultures, Peruvian artisan Berardo Santos creates this beautiful and awe-evoking sling. Crafted from leather, the simple sling features pre-Hispanic bird motifs that are carefully tooled by hand into the material. On the backside, a ceremonial tumi ax is depicted. The bag's flap opens with a belt buckle closure, revealing an unlined interior with a faux leather open pocket on one side. This accessory drapes over one shoulder on an adjustable strap.

"A Handbag With Ancient Symbols, a Must!"

When I saw this handbag with the pre-Hispanic symbols, I knew that I wanted one. Then when I looked at the close views of the workmanship, I was sold. When I received the handbag, I knew that I had made a great choice. The leather tooling is outstanding and the bag is very well made. The shoulder strap is very long so I will probably have it shortened by a leather craftsman from my area. I havent decided yet.

"Everything I wanted"

I had a bag very similar to this one when I was in high school and college. It was beautiful!! Someone stole it. I was heart broken. When I found this on the site I was giddy happy! Being sick and tired of the poor quality of items on the market now I pulled the trigger and bought this beautiful bag!!! It is built to last. Im 63 now and this will be my last.
