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. Maya women weavers who have handed down their textile art from generation to generation for thousands of years.

Way too small & over priced for the material & construction of the purse. I do not recommend purchasing this product.Read More
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!Read More
Thought the bag was much bigger, fabric was not what I expected and the color was a bit different.Read More
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.Read More
