Cotton tote handbag, 'Fragrant Coffee' (Guatemala)

Woven by hand on a backstrap loom, the fabric for this generous tote takes its colors from natural dyes. The women of To'ooneel Ixoq craft a fully lined shoulder bag with a convenient inner zipper pocket. "We've named this design Caf Arom tico (planting coffee) because we use coffee beans to tint the threads. The color reminds us of the fragrant coffee we share with family and friends," they say.
