Ruth y Nohemi

About the Producer

Ruth y Nohemi

Ruth y Nohemi is a weaving cooperative located in Chontola, near Chichicastenango, Guatemala.



Sits neatly against my body with few contents, but expands to accommodate lots. The fine weave and lining make it very sturdy, and the wide shoulder strap makes even heavy loads comfortable to carry. One of my favourite bags - ever!
