This stunning carryall tote in a modern geometric pattern was handloomed by Manos Artesanas in Tarma, Peru.  And while Soledad is a no nonsense black and white on the outside, the Peruvian market fabric makes her all fun on the inside. Suede straps and bottom make this textile bag strong  enough to carry six wine bottles (we take our testing seriously!) Pompoms sold separately. 

Impact

To create this bag, we partnered with Manos Artesanas, a group of women weavers in an agricultural valley deeply scarred by the violence inflicted by the Shining Path movement in the 1980s. Manos Artesanas is led by Olinda Inga Sánchez, who organized a group of women who have been weaving since childhood to work in a cooperative environment and bring their products to market. 

Catrinka contributes a share of proceeds  from the sale of each bag to girls education efforts in the areas where we work.  Learn more For returns or international shipping options email info@catrinka.com.
