This lovely tote bag blends Mayan tradition with today's fashion. The exterior is cotton handwoven on a backstrap loom. Designed by Luisa Villavicencio of Guatemala, the exterior fabric is made from cotton harvested from her family farm. The beige colors are the natural color of the cotton varieties grown on the Villavicencio farm, mixed with black to create a subtle stripe on the body of the bag and a diamond pattern at the top. The diamond pattern is called rupan, which means 'dish' and symbolizes the sacred dishes that are used to make offerings to the gods in Mayan ceremonies. The tote bag has brown leather handles and matching leather on the bottom. The spacious main compartment secures with a magnetic snap and is lined with brown cotton with a zippered pocket set into the lining.

    Very Happy!

    I like this in person even more than the pictures. Love the timeless, casual, global vibe. I Love that the black in the fabric paired with the brown leather give it versatility. The subtle pattern will work with other prints in my outfits. The strap length is perfect for the shoulder bag I prefer. The size is great for me. Generous but not into the tote bag category. Looks well made. I am excited to use it all summer. 2 small issues... for me, more and larger internal pockets would give it more practicality. I might work with a seamstress to achieve that. The leather on one of the straps is missing the dye in places. I'm just going to ignore it rather than take a chance on anything I apply rubbing off on my clothing. Still a 5 star offering for me!

    Love, love this bag! It's big enough to hold wallet, glasses, makeup bag and more. I will cherish it for years. Thank you for designing and making bags like this one!
