Whether it be a jaunt to the beach or a trip to the market, our new collapsible Indigo Jaspe Rosa Tote is casual yet diverse. With two Italian leather pulls accented with tassels, this hand woven ikat tote takes on a unique shape when open and closed.
Each Mercado collection starts with a journey to the highlands of Guatemala, where talented indigenous women artisans develop unique creations. Mercado Global artisans weave using two traditional methods – the traditional back strap loom or the foot loom. Mercado Global provides donor-funded business education and leadership programs to help women in marginalized populations become successful business owners. With this income, artisans provide nutritious food to their families and invest in their children’s education — and the community breaks the cycle of poverty.
