Product Description

What a handsome bag made by hand twining plant fiber in Bolivia.

The bromeliad fiber is cultivated by the Ayoreo women of the Puesto Paz community. Read about them here. The body of the bag is constructed with a twining technique, and the strap is plied and has a woven strip to protect the shoulder. Natural dyes are used to produce dark rust and black colors.. The bags are traditional; the patterns motifs represent the seven clans of the Ayoreo indigenous people.

The women of the Cheque Oitedie cooperative in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, are raising their standard of living and education from the sale of these bags.
