Details

This cotton sling handbag designed and crafted 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 shades of tangerine, chartreuse, and sky blue among others and weave them on a traditional backstrap loom to create the cheerful bag with varicolored stripes. The purse has a roomy zippered interior which is lined with blue nylon fabric and one exterior zippered pocket; it also features a flap which closes with a magnetic snap. The colorful braided strap adds boho flair.
