Details

This gorgeous handbag is from Guatemala's Luisa Villavicencio, whose family has perhaps the last cotton plantation in the country. The cotton varieties that they grow have natural tints that render dyes unnecessary, leaving the cotton yarns as pure and natural as possible. This handbag is crafted from their cotton, hand-woven with smart stripes in dark blue and antique gold. The sides and handles are made from supple dark brown leather. The fully-lined bag features two open pockets and one zipper pocket in the interior. The bag is secured by a magnetic snap.

"Besy eyeglasses case Ive ever owned"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am so very glad I purchased this eyeglass case. I knew when I saw it I woyld probably live it just for the lovely color and pattern. But it is a very well constructed case and my prescriptiin glasses are safe in this case. I wanted a unique well made case for my expensive eyeglasses and I am so pleased with this. If you are looking for a very sturdy as well as beautiful unique case for your valuable eyewear, please do yourself a favor and select this from this talented artisan. Im so glad I did.
