Maguey Mesh Bag - Smoked

£65.00

Made in Mexico

An eco-friendly, lightweight tote handmade in Mexico from maguey plant fibre. Made from an expandable fine mesh weave in a dark honey colour achieved through a special smoking process. Finished with an adjustable hand-cut leather strap to make this a durable and timeless accessory.

Maguey bags are wardrobe staple across much of the highlands of Southern Mexico, typically made by older generations of artisans as an activity to supplement livestock farming. Fibre is stripped from agave leaves, spun into cord on the thigh of the artisan and expertly hand woven using techniques that have been passed down generations.

Note: Leather conditioner or protective should be applied to the strap occasionally in order to avoid drying, cracking or staining.

Care: The bag can be cleaned with a damp cloth and cold water, when required Please note that each piece may vary as they are made by hand.
