This sling designed and crafted using loom woven material by Nelson Hernandez and Wendhy Salones of Oaxaca, Mexico, has enough space for the essentials but is small enough that you won't mind carrying it. The married artisans emphasize that they like to work mainly with natural fibers such as linen and wool; in this case they use 100% cotton thread in a ginger hue for the purse's main color and add stripes in contrasting shades of blue, violet, yellow, and pastel pink. The bag features a flap with a magnetic snap closure which folds over the roomy interior zippered compartment lined with orange-red nylon fabric; an additional exterior compartment also closes with a zipper. The colorful braided strap adds boho flair.

This small purse is so bright and such a perfect summer bag. I have had many compliments on it. Big enough for a cell phone and make up. I am considering buying the Pastel Dream bag.
- I don't carry large purses so this is perfect for a phone and make up
