Hanging out among a group of flowers, a vibrant rooster decorates the front of this cotton blend tote from Peru. Maria Uyauri handcrafts the tote in the style of arpillera patchwork with intricate embroidery. This handbag's body is made of cotton, featuring a tie-dyed motif in blue. A zipper pocket on the back provides handy space for storing small items. Draped over the shoulder on two straps, the tote opens with a magnetic snap to reveal a cotton lining that is decorated with archaeological Nazca line motifs. A zipper pocket on the side completes the lining.
