Many pre-Columbian cultures have examples of woven fabrics dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. Guatemala is known for a type of weaving called double-ikat, which comes from an Indonesian word meaning to bind. In Ikat, threads are tie-dyed before being strung on the loom this predetermines the pattern that will be created. Ikat can be used to create textiles of astonishingly intricate detail, as well as soft, blended patterns like on this punchy purple tote. Made from cotton that is hand-woven in Solola, Guatemala, it has an inner zip pocket, an inner cell phone slot pocket, and a light beige cotton lining that means searching for a lost lip balm doesn't require a flashlight. Features leather straps and detail along the zip top, as well as feet on the bottom that help the bag stay upright when you set it down.
