The materials are 100% natural and completely free of any dyes.Luisa Villavicencio's workshop creates apparel and accessories that celebrate the rich textile tradition of her family. The cotton woven into their designs is grown in a plantation started by Luisa's father and her knowledge of traditional textiles comes through her mother who was trained in Maya weaving. In an effort to contribute to a greener environment, the workshop has a long-standing partnership with a firm that recycles denim scraps discarded by Guatemala's clothing industry and uses them to create pieces such as this one.

Sold with 2 flaws from manufacturing”

I was very disappointed because didnt expect that this would be sold with 2 flaws from manufacturing, which shows that they dont have good quality control. This is quite expensive to received it like that. My partner has health issues so Ive not been able to return it. I never had this issue with Novica before and I have been shopping here for the last 15+ years. Other than that, the fabric and cut are nice. The material feels good to the touch. I have not used it because I plan on return it plus the flaw is quite evident.

This bag is the best! So well made, every seam, the handles, the inside pockets, all are top grade work! Thank you, Luisa, for the attention to detail! I carry this everywhere with pride. This bag is made of substantial fabric and will last for years to come. Please support this artist, you will not be disappointed.
