Luscious shades of purple, fuchsia, lilac and pink bring bold elegance to a messenger bag adorned with black concentric diamonds. From Yama Aj Chixot Artisan Group, the bag is sewn together by one team, with a cotton fabric woven by another team of experts on the pedal loom. The fully lined shoulder bag has a pocket under the flap and a loop on one side to knot the strap to the desired length. The flap closes with a magnetic button, and the bag itself with a zipper.
The fabric for this bag is cut from a larger piece woven on a pedal loom, therefore the order of colors and the positioning of the patterns my vary slightly, resulting in a unique piece.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
The association prides itself on protecting and preserving the very long-standing tradition of weaving using a floor loom. The women have all learned this technique from their mothers or grandmothers, and plan to teach their daughters as well.
Unfortunately many women in this area have been affected by miscarriages and the loss of newborns. This can cause a woman to go into a deep depression. Together they overcome these tragic events and provide constant support for one another.
Thanks to the work of these women, their children have the opportunity to study and have a better future. As an association, part of their income is donated to school infrastructure.
The association has been able to grow and increase their sales, which is then passed along to the women and their families.
The Yama Aj Chixot artisan group enables women to make a fair wage that helps them support their children.
"Beautiful colors, sturdy and versatile"
This cotton messenger bag is my new main purse and goes everywhere with me. It has a zipper and magnet for extra-secure closing and the strap is adjustable for the best fit for you. There's plenty of room inside and an extra outside pocket for things I need to grab quickly. I'm happy to have such a beautiful handcrafted purse with pinks and purples as its eye-catching colors. It also makes me feel good that I've supported a women's artisan group in Guatemala wth this purchase.
