Ceci Tote (Blue)
Are you looking for a lightweight, durable, go-everywhere tote or laptop bag? The Ceci Tote features a modern take on the traditional diamonds weaving patterns in Chiapas and leather handles with a buckle accent. Lined in white cotton muslin with an interior zip pocket and 100% cow leather handles. Measures 17" h x 15" w x 2.5" g. The fabric for this bag was woven on a pedal loom by Josefa, with help from her daughter Ceci, in Nachig, Chiapas. The bag was assembled in an ethical factory outside of Mexico City. Each bag provided 2 days of fair work to women in Mexico. The sale of each bag provides a week of life skills mentoring for adolescent indigenous girls through the Catrinka Girls Project.
