What is lovelier than shades of red, purple and green. Always a stunning combination. This beautiful bag features a woven band at the top showcasing special motifs from Chahuaytire, a member village in the Peruvian Highlands of the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco.

The durable and finely handwoven alpaca/wool bag is fully lined, has an interior zipped pocket, and strong straps for carrying plenty. It has a zipped closure.

This bag was woven by artisan weaver, Yrma Alvarado Yucra, member of Chahuaytire village and cooperative member of Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, located in the Peruvian Highlands of Cusco.
