Purses

Leather Purses/Handbags/Portfolios~ Our leather bags are made by artisans who are at risk of extreme poverty. A nonprofit organization provided these artisans with materials, sewing machines and a consultation with a designer in order to design their line of products. All purses/handbags are handmade by this community of people, including the embroidery! 

 

Wool Purses/Handbags/Tote bags~ Our wool handbags are made by the Zapotec people with great skill and patience. First, the artisan makes the dyes from insects, rocks, and plants found in the area. Then, they place the wool inside of a stainless steel pot, add water to it, bring the water to boil, and add the natural dyes to it. After this, they dry the wool and weave the fabric using a rustic "Telar" (loom) to make the fabric of the purse. 

 
Fabric Purses/Handbags/Morrales~ Our Fabric bags are made by the Otomi and Triqui people with love, patience, and expertise. All the embroidery is made by hand.
