Details

Compact and perfectly sized for wearing across the body, this sling bag from artisans Nelson Hernandez and Wendhy Salones of Santo Tomás Jalieza in Oaxaca, Mexico, is handcrafted from 100% cotton. Lines of apple green, blush, tangerine, and pale blue contrast against the main black color in the purse's loom-woven material; the attractive strap is braided using thread in the same hues. It's easy to organize your belongings by using the nylon fabric-lined interior for larger items such as a cell phone and the exterior compartment for smaller objects like keys and lip balm; both of these sections close with zippers. The handbag's flap closes with a magnetic snap.
