HAND WOVEN OAXACAN TOTE:
From the mercado’s and puestos in rural pueblos to the runways of Paris, these humble bags have become quite the fashion statement. Handwoven from recycled plastic, this is the original “go green” and “upcycled” bag! Used for Domingos in the Mercados, they are built sturdy, to haul the kilos of aguacates, frijol, chile secos, and tortillas that are purchased each week. Today’s Oaxacan totes use more contemporary colors, magnetic closures, and other features to give it more use and bring it out of the mercado and onto the streets. The long handles allow you to carry or comfortably throw it over your shoulder. This beautiful tote can pull off double duty as a go-to bag for everyday use, or a sophisticated tote for a night out. It measures: 17” wide x 13” tall (22 ¼” tall with handles) and features a magnetic closure. It comes in 5 colors with a matching ornamental tassel.
