This beautiful little bag was expertly handwoven out of cotton fabric by women artisans in Guatemala. The black and white fabric was woven on a traditional foot loom. The interior is lined with recycled denim, made from discarded denim scraps spun with undyed cotton. And it is finished off with a bright red tassel.

ABOUT THE ARTISANS
This bag was handmade by master weavers in a fair trade women's cooperative in Guatemala. The women fit their work into their daily routines of cooking for their families, caring for children, and tending their milpas (corn, beans and squash crops) and animals. Coop members share skills and expertise, encourage one another and enjoy the mutual support. The women are paid fair wages and have seen their lives greatly improve through fair trade practices.
