Details

The intense colors of this shoulder bag are fascinating as women from the Ixil Maya community share their historic textiles through the Cotzal Artisan Cooperative. They deftly weave this cotton shoulder bag on the back strap loom creating stripes of red, orange, terrracotta, green, grey, aqua, beige, brown, and blue. The images on the front reveal beliefs held by their Maya ancestors, such as the milpa (corn), symbolizing the beauty of our natural environment and the deer, symbolizing freedom as well as the forests. The brown cotton interior includes one zipper pocket.

"Gorgeous woven bag"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This shoulder bag is beautiful, I love the navy blue color along with the bright colors that depict the birds and trees in the design. Straps are perfect length for a shoulder bag and three compartments are great for organization. The magnetic closures are a nice addition to keep the bag closed. Perfect size, not too small and not huge, just right! This is a hand woven piece of art, thank you to the artist that made this, you are gifted!
