Eco-friendly Shoulder Bag - Colors of Xela

$45.00

Here are the new companions of your daily errands in the city!


Combining our craftswomen's expertise and skill in backstrap loom weaving and leather making, these precious bags will provide you with velvety comfort and all the spacious capacity you need to keep all your tiny treasures and secrets safe.


Their bright and lively colors reproduce the breath-taking nature of Guatemala, from the most exotic and rare orchids of the forest to the lilies, cactuses, pansies and violas that adorn the streets of Quetzaltenango, the headquarter of our cooperative.


The leather that composes the strap of these unique accessories has undergone the process of vegetable tanning, making it 100% biodegradable, resistant and extremely refined. Indeed, natural tannins alter the protein structure of each hide, giving it robustness, deep earthy hues and a distinct aroma: these are all features of high and valuable quality.


Check them out: you will not be able to embark on a new adventure without these lovely bags!

WE ARE UNIQUE

Each shoulder bag is handmade by TRAMA's weavers using the traditional backstrap loom weaving technique of the Guatemalan highlands. Each product is the result of these women's craftsmanship combined with the expertise of Guatemalan leather artisans, so they are not only beautiful but also incredibly durable and resistant.

Being completely handmade, each of these bags has unique and inimitable features.

 

WE ARE SUSTAINABLE FOR PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Our eco-friendly bags are made with 100% organic materials and passion.

The process of both vegetable tanning and weaving is energy- and resource-saving, with minimum usage of water and electricity.
