Story Behind the Art:
Backstrap loom fabric is handwoven by members of the Solola Weaver's Group; 22 Kakchiquel Mayan women make finely-woven pieces using a traditional tie-dye technique called ikat or jaspe. 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 to support weaving groups and small family businesses by providing consistent income as well as health and education projects.

I like a wallet with a coin pocket for my loose coins, and sufficient slots for my credit cards. I searched a long time to find this one. I was a little concerned that it is made of cotton instead of leather, but it seems durable and well finished. My only negative is that the strip of loop material which acts as the closer is a little narrow and if the wallet is full it barely catches. That problem seems to be diminishing - perhaps it is stretching with use or I am managing the contents of my wallet better. However, it would be beneficial if this strip of loop material was a little wider.
Other than that it is a very nice wallet, and serves my purpose extremely well. I am very pleased with this purchase.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes, I bought the olive wallet which matched the onsite description and color.
