Description

You’ll be ready for market day with this roomy slouchy bag. Guatemalan bag is produced from 100% cotton ikat fabric, prewashed for softness. Artisans weave cloth on traditional looms, then sew it into finished products. Ikat is a weaving style that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either warp or weft before the threads are woven to create a pattern. Ikat means “to tie” or “to bind” in the Indonesian language. Ikats have been woven in cultures all over the world.

    I bought this bag for my sister's Birthday. She recently flew to Guatemala for a Missions Trip and absolutely fell in love with culture. When I stumbled upon Ten Thousand Villages and this beautifully intricate bag, I could not help myself in purchasing it. The colors are vibrant and the quality is fantastic. I know she is going to love it and be taken right back to that little Guatemalan village. LOVE IT!
