Handwoven Maguey Mesh Bag
This eco-friendly, lightweight tote is both durable and timeless. Maguey plant fiber is stripped from the agave leaf, spun into cord on the thigh of a 92-year old artisan, and expertly woven by hand using traditional processes. A single bag takes her over a month to make. This expandable extra fine weave stunner is finished with an adjustable strap of hand-cut leather.
The artisan has been producing these bags for over 80 years. She works on them seven days a week, and noted that her consistent efforts help to contribute to her household and provide a sense of purpose, as she is no longer able to work in the fields.

This natural piece is incredibly durable, however leather conditioner should be applied to the strap in order to avoid drying and cracking. A weather protective spray should also be applied to the strap to keep stains from happening. The bag can be cleaned with a damp cloth and cold water, when required.
Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and colours may vary slightly from the featured product image. The rustic leather straps are hand-tooled, and with this, there will be nicks, scratches and colour variances in the leather – this is normal and due to the handmade process
