Crafted by hand using locally sourced palm straw material, this bohemian tote bag features an intricate hand-braided design with naturally tanned leather handles and a button snap closure. The neutral palm straw material and brown leather straps make it a versatile option for use year-round. Each handmade bag is unique and may vary in size and color.

For generations, Guerrero's artisans have been weaving palm leaves into baskets, bags, and hats. They have preserved the art of bringing this material to life through ancestral technique, and they carry on the traditions boiling, dying, hand-braiding, and sewing the palm leaves into works of art. It can take years for artisans to master their technique, and each artisan can hand weave 1 to 2 baskets a day.
