Roll over image to zoom in

Natural cotton colors combine in a handbag that showcases its handwoven beauty. Brown leather accents on the sides and bottom give shape to the purse, and a leather belt surrounds it. "Because not every woman has the same needs or carries the same things, we made the belt adjustable," she says. "We wanted to make a bag that can work for you." Two inner pouches hold keys and cell phone while an inner pocket that runs the length of the bag zips closed.

The Villavicencio family cultivates cotton in several natural colors ñ jade, brown and ivory, or raw cotton. In fact, people are surprised to learn that no dyes are used. The family is involved in the entire process, from growing the cotton, to weaving it and transforming it into this handbag.

Artisan: Luisa Villavicencio

Artisan Luisa Villavicencio 'My story is really the story of my whole family, beginning with my parents,' says Guatemala's Luisa Villavicencio. 'My father was passionate about growing cotton, a crop that originated with the Maya. We work with only three pure colors. Apart from the crude cotton color, we use a seed known as ixcaco that produces brown cotton. We call our third color jade. All the rest of our colors are a result of combining fibers and threads from these three when weaving the fabric.'
