Details

Representing local artisans, the Aj Quen Association presents this messenger bag. Local Guatemalan artisans hand-weave the bag of cotton, featuring a solid color in black with a striped multicolored belt that holds the front flap secure. The flap opens with a magnetic snap, revealing the bag's main zipper. It opens to a cotton-lined interior in sepia, complete with an inner open pocket. A zipper pocket located at the back of the bag provides even more space for storing items.

The Aj Quen Association is one of the oldest weaving associations in Guatemala. It was founded as a non-profit development entity in 1989 through the efforts of six different artisan groups from various regions of the country. These groups came together to help preserve their cultural identity and to better market their art.

My friend introduced me to Mayan Textiles. I was looking for a travel bag. This tote was great for the cruise we took -- strong, durable and great looking - perfect for those items I had to keep handy while traveling.

i just received my Maya Jade tote handbag and I love it! It is beautifully made and I will love using it! A wonderful surprise was the little cloth worry doll that came in the wrapping. I look forward to putting it under my pillow to forget my worries. thank you!
