SKU: 343598
Inspired by the vibrant flowers in the Comalapa region of Guatemala, Mirian Otzin designs this fashionable backpack. She works on a traditional telar de pie, or floor loom, diligently hand-weaving multicolored zigzags and geometric patterns in the style of Mayan textiles. Faux leather accentuates this backpack, which can be worn on two adjustable straps or carried by a handle. A zipper pocket on the front provides space for storing odds and ends. The bag's main flap opens with a belt buckle, revealing a drawstring closure that opens to a cotton-lined interior with a zipper pocket on one side for storing small items.

    It is bigger than I expected. I was hoping it would be about 50% of the size it is but it is light and holds a bunch of stuff if you carry a bunch of stuff. It has a generous front pocket so my phone (Samsung Note 9) fits easily.
