This fabulous bag is the smaller version of our popular Catch the Wave model. Crafted by women in a fair trade cooperative in Cambodia, it is handwoven using local grasses and vegetable dyes. This design has a unique curved shaped which is both stylish and comfortable to wear. The strap can be converted to be worn as a double strap on the shoulder, as a single cross body strap or detached to use as a clutch. The red accent beads on the zipper pull can be removed if desired.
This purse is very firm and durable - it will last many years and retain its shape. Each one comes with a brochure with photos of the artisans and weaving process.
