I bought this bag in 2014 and have used it daily since. It still looks great and hasnt come undone at the seams anywhere. I cant believe Ive had it as long as I have. Would highly recommend. Great quality.

"Disappointed!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The material is so very thin and flimsy for a shoulder bag. I feel it is to thin to even use as a tote. The opening is very narrow also. Gave 2 stars for beautiful color and seems well made. I am unable to use do to the thin material so will be returning.

"One of my favorite purses!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This purse became one of my favorites the moment I opened the package. The colors and design are very eye-catching. Its lightweight yet can hold fairly heavy items. The bag itself is quite roomy and the straps are the perfect length. The workmanship is beautiful. All in all, I love it!!

"Nice Fabric"

Thick deep navy with lighter colored accents make this a perfect match in my bedroom. No zipper, just a fold over opening on the back.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

The association prides itself on protecting and preserving the very long-standing tradition of weaving using a floor loom. The women have all learned this technique from their mothers or grandmothers, and plan to teach their daughters as well.

Unfortunately many women in this area have been affected by miscarriages and the loss of newborns. This can cause a woman to go into a deep depression. Together they overcome these tragic events and provide constant support for one another.

Thanks to the work of these women, their children have the opportunity to study and have a better future. As an association, part of their income is donated to school infrastructure.

The association has been able to grow and increase their sales, which is then passed along to the women and their families.

The Yama Aj Chixot artisan group enables women to make a fair wage that helps them support their children.

Yama Aj Chixot Artisan Group has received a $200 microcredit loan with 0% interest.

This association generates employment for more than 125 women.
