Details

The intense colors of this shoulder bag are fascinating as women from the Ixil Maya community share their historic textiles through the Cotzal Artisan Cooperative. They deftly weave this cotton shoulder bag on the back strap loom creating stripes of red, orange, terrracotta, green, grey, aqua, beige, brown, and blue. The images on the front reveal beliefs held by their Maya ancestors, such as the milpa (corn), symbolizing the beauty of our natural environment and the deer, symbolizing freedom as well as the forests. The brown cotton interior includes one zipper pocket.
