Story Behind the Art:
The San Juan Weavers Group is made up of Tzutujil women who weave using backstrap Ikat, an ancient labor intensive technique of hand tying and dying threads in elaborate patterns. Their style of weaving uses textured cotton thread which softens with each washing. Maya Traditions is a fair-trade producer and wholesale business based in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. For more than ten years Maya Traditions has worked with indigenous weavers in the highlands of Guatemala. Its mission is to support weaving groups and small family businesses through providing consistent income, as well as health and education projects.

  • Perfect Weekend Purse

    This little bag is the perfect size for a small wallet and a cell phone. The fabric is handmade and lovely, with rich vibrant colors. I love the idea of supporting the women of Guatemala who make these, and you can tell that they put a lot of care into the construction.

  • cute but not functional

    Liked the bag, liked the size, but the first time I used it, the strap came out. I didn't put any stress on the strap, it just came out! The stitching must have been loose and I cannot repair it. I am dissappointed.

  • Weekend Bag

    I really love this bag. Its a great color and a great fabric. I imagined it a little bigger, but I actually think it works well being small and portable. Its great for a quick trip that I don't want to take a big purse with me. Very Happy with the purchase and Overstock.com
