👛 Durable, all natural and Eco-friendly handmade bag
🍃Natural palm leaf bag with fold over flap interwoven with colourful design in a geometric pattern.
This Clutch bag is hand-weaved with palm leaf and is adorned with an embroidered 👧 doll. This is piece made by artisan hands from beginning to end. It can have slight variations of colour and design because raw material comes from nature and every piece is made by hand, one by one.
The making of a single bag embroidered with beads can take up to 3 weeks! It is made by the artisans from the state of Puebla Mexico.
The leaves of a special palm found in the region of Puebla, Mexico, are carefully chosen, cut and put in the sun to dry for a very specific time. This raw material is used to weave large sheets of "petate" and later these sheets are dyed and softened again with steam so that the fibres of palm do not later fall apart. Then the shapes patterns for different types of bags or purses are cut, lining and biases are added and sewn together with nylon thread.
The embroidery with bead-work and sequin is done by hand putting one bead at a time. The patterns are inspired by the typical costume of “china poblana” also native to the region of Puebla, Mexico.
This bag is lined on the inside with cotton fabric. Can fit a cell phone, wallet, cosmetics and papers.
