Buena Vida Crocheted Cotton Bag

Buena Vida Crocheted Cotton Bag


Product Info + Artisan Story

Handmade by artisan partner who crochets these pieces with thick cotton. Her family didn’t want her to work as an artisan, but to instead concentrate on her schooling. Starting when she was five years old, she’d watch them work on projects through the opening of the door and sneak material into her room to work on her own projects at night.

The wool tassels are detachable and made by an artisan family in the Oaxaca valley. This family has been weaving since 1920, and still produce award-winning work today. They currently have to pay expensive medical bills to see specialists, as their young daughter has developmental issues. This tassel project was devised as a way to supplement their income to pay for medical expenses.

16” w x 18" h with 7" handle (40cm x 45cm, 18cm handle)
