This recycled cosmetic bag is crafted from a traditional Mayan blouse & supple nubuck leather, blending modern design with rich tradition. Each bag comes in a variety of floral or geometric patterns. Each piece will vary slightly reflecting the hand of the artisan. The compartments are cotton lined with nubuck leather detailing and full zipper closure with additional front compartment.
Each pouch is one-of-a-kind and patterns may vary widely from what's shown. All are beautiful!
Please select Pink for a floral design or Blue for a geometric design (not reflective of actual colors in pouch, just the pattern type).
Fair trade from Guatemala
-4.55” H x 8.25” W (at base)
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.
Ash & Rose is a boutique on a mission to make the world a little more beautiful, every day. It's a shop for women who love all things romantic, whimsical, pretty and practical - and care about the planet and the people who inhabit it.
