Details

This expandable boho bag is sure to become your new best friend. Luisa Villavicencio designs it in light blue recycled cotton denim with leather handles and details. The roomy interior is lined in cotton canvas and features two pouch pockets plus a zippered one. She adds a lobster claw hook to bring in the sides and allow you to shape or expand this bag as you like. All of Luisa's creations use 100% natural cotton fibers and are completely free of dyes.

Luisa Villavicencio's father dedicated his life to cultivating and preserving the Mayan cotton species native to Central America. Her designs mix fibers from her father's cotton crops, recycled denim scraps from Guatemala's garment industry, and a unique touch, courtesy of traditional weaving techniques. She and her family are committed to running a socially and environmentally responsible business and employ over 80 artisans in their workshop.
