This bag has been made from a rug made by hand by Aimara women from the Altiplano of Peru and Bolivia. Created according to local traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation.
The colors and patterns depend on the season and have complex indigenous meanings that take weeks to weave. They are woven on portable wooden looms made by them. It is common to see them weaving while taking care of the cattle.
These products are created in remote villages, with enough time and patience and unusual conditions in our society.
They may contain imperfections typical of manual work that give them greater authenticity and character.
We travel to the Altiplano to work directly with local artisans, paying a fair price that allows the development of local communities while maintaining their traditions and culture.
Ideal as a complement, they are unique and exclusive.
