Story Behind the Art:
'Some years ago, I decided to buy buriti palm fiber, dye it and sell to the artisans who were making straw handbags,' says Carlos Paiva as he recalls how he got started. 'I noticed they were repeating the same designs and shapes, and so I began creating my own designs. Today, there are 15 artisans working with me and my handbags are appreciated in Brazil and as far away as Europe.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
