Western style meets bohemian luxury in this gorgeous work of wearable art. The rigid leather pouch is hand tooled, meaning that the rich design was hammered into the material for an embossed effect. It's whip stitch around the border and finished with a playful tassel over a magnetic snap closure.

  • Bag measures 9" H x 8" W, with an adjustable 42"-48" leather strap.
  • Tassel measures 5" long.
  • Handmade in a fair trade workshop in Guatemala.

All of Altiplano's products are handcrafted in the highlands (Altiplano) of Guatemala. Based on the beautiful shores of Lake Atitlan, beneath the towering volcanoes, Altiplano has been providing fair wages and employment for over 20 years.

Altiplano provides employment opportunities to cooperative groups, small family businesses, and to the women who work in the brand's own fair trade workshop. In an effort to support traditional life, Altiplano offers women the opportunity to work at home, making them available for their children, and other domestic duties, while earning financial independence.

Whether drawing from traditional techniques or exploring new ones, owner/designer Shari Zarin is inspired by the skill and motivation of the many artisans that she works with. The Altiplano workplace represents mutual appreciation, dedication, and respect, and the many beautiful products that result reflect these values.
