Story Behind the Art:
In Maya, K'amolon K'i K'ojonel means 'let's get together,' and it is the name of an association with a mission to provide assistance and support to women in Solola who were left widowed during Guatemala's armed conflict. Many children were orphaned, too, and people were left in extreme poverty. As an effort to promote ecological preservation, they use bamboo chenille. It is a better option because bamboo grows faster and does not lead to deforestation.

I bought 2 bags and have just ordered the Love red one. The big plus is the front pocket outside the bag which is deeeeeeeep, so it comfortably holds 2 glasses cases and my cell without looking crammed or lumpy. The bag has a wonderfully long shoulder strap. The reinforced bottom has it holding its shape well. AND it is machine washable, though I haven"t tried that yet.The colors are really lovely. I am now tempted to buy a couple of these in other colors as special gifts.Read More
