Oversize Handwoven Palm Shopping Bag with Leather Trim


Ships in 5 -7 business days

We snagged this beautiful market/shopping bag from the Mixteca Alta, Oaxaca, and we are passing it on to you! It is all woven by hand in the traditional zigzag motif of the region. For extra sturdiness, the maker added leather straps and a leather clasp secured with magnets to last a very long time! The bag is elegant, stylish and can carry a load of stuff. Or just use it as your personal go everywhere tote bag. Measures 16-1/2″ x 7 ” x 14″ high.

Other uses: Store magazines and books, take it on a picnic, hold toilet tissue, roll up towels for decorative bathroom storage, use for soiled laundry, as a knitting or sewing basket, or to hold pantry items. What else can you think of? Let us know.

We have organized another study tour to the Mixteca Alta in March 2025, where we take you to markets and makers. You can find similar baskets at the giant tianguis mercado in Tlaxiaco. We also visit weavers, embroiderers, potters, and natural dyers, and eat amazing food. See our website for details.
