Story Behind the Art:
The Pro-Teje Committee came about in 1994. The name in Spanish plays on the homonym 'protege,' meaning 'it protects.' It focuses on rescuing textiles created on the back strap loom, with which the weaver maintains the tension of the warp with a belt worn around her waist, leaning backward and forward to tighten or loosen the tension.

  • not what i expected

    I was purchasing this item with the intent of giving as a gift. On line, it looked beautiful, I almost purchased two. The only reason I did not was because the person I wanted to give too, we are always together. However, it is ALOT smaller than it appears. The quality and workmanship is just not there. The zipper was difficult to work. Sorry!

  • Lovely bag but very small

    The dimensions on this bag are incorrect It indicates that the bag is over 15 inches long and when it arrived, I could not believe how small it was! I measured it and it is only 11-1.2 inches long. I was hoping to fit my laptop in it and cannot because teh dimensions are wrong. The craftsmanship is lovely and it's a pretty color and very simple. I am not going to return it because it is shipped from Guatemala and required a signature upon delivery. I will use it as a small weekend purse because it is so cute. So, if you are looking for a small casual handbag, then I would recommend this but if you think you want something bigger because of the description, then don't get this bag.
