A veritable museum-quality masterpiece, this eco-friendly, lightweight tote is both durable and timeless. Maguey plant fiber is stripped from the agave leaf, spun into cord on the thigh of our 92-year old artisan partner, and expertly woven by hand using traditional processes. A single bag takes our partner over a month to make. This expandable extra fine weave stunner is finished with an adjustable strap of hand-cut leather, and can be used as a functional accessory, or as an elegant piece of wall décor.

Artisan
This supremely talented artisan has been producing these ixtle bags for 82 years. She works on them six days a week, and noted that this art practice helps to contribute to her household, and to provide a sense of purpose, as she is no longer able to work in the fields or her backstrap loom.

Dimensions
Approximately 40cm long x 45cm wide unstretched

Care
This natural piece is incredibly durable, however leather conditioner should be applied to the strap in order to avoid drying and cracking. A weather protective spray should also be applied to the strap to keep stains from happening. The bag can be cleaned with a damp cloth and cold water, when required.

Note
Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and colours may vary slightly from the featured product image. The rustic leather straps are hand-tooled, and with this, there will be nicks, scratches and colour variances in the leather – this is normal and due to the handmade process.
