Cotton handbags, 'Zigzag Night' (pair) (Guatemala)

Learning her craft from a young age, Guatemalan artisan Maria Clara Ixtuc proudly designs this pair of handbags. She works with cotton, carefully hand-crocheting a coin purse and cosmetic bag. The larger cosmetic bag features a solid color in black with a faux leather accent and dangling tassels while the coin purse displays snow white zigzag patterns over its black body. Each bag opens with a zipper to a single-compartment lined interior.
