A simply gorgeous cotton shoulder bag made by women from traditional handwoven Guatemalan cloth. From a group called 'Ruth y Nohemi' near Chichicastenango, set up to support widows from Guatemala's civil war.
Fully lined with cotton, with a wide comfortable shoulder strap. Colours may vary.
Approximately 45 x 45 cms.
An NI staff favourite
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!

A little about Global Mamas: Global Mamas is a Fair Trade cooperative in Ghana, West Africa, supporting the sustainable development of women artisans producing fair trade products
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
