This charming and beautifully woven little bag was donated from the personal collection of fiber artist, Catherine Joslyn of CR Designs, from her travels in Peru. It is made from synthetic yarn, woven on a backstrap loom and used for carry coco leaves. The weaver made it on the lovely Taquile Island in Lake Titicaca, reknowned for it’s knitting and weaving. The pretty patterns surround condor designs on one side and plants and frogs on the reverse side. It would look really nice hanging on a wall or cinch up the straps and use it as a small bag hanging off your belt.
It measures 4.5″ square.
