Multi-colored bands feature traditional motifs and frame a central solid-color pleat in this unusual and spacious tote. The wool-alpaca blend of fibers are naturally dyed with colors derived from flowers, roots, insect, and bark. The patterns are motifs from the Mahuaypampa Center for Traditional Textiles cooperative in the Peruvians Highlands of Cusco. The durable and finely handwoven tote is fully lined, has an interior zipped pocket, a zippered closure, and strong straps for carrying plenty.
This bag has a deep red-rust center-pleated panel and is embellished with a removable pompom.
This bag was woven by Ana Maria Quispe, a member of the Mahuaypampa community and cooperative member of Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, located in the Peruvian Highlands of Cusco.
