Crimson and Feather Wool Crossbody Bag
Manos Zapotecas' Adelita is the size of a clutch with a convenient crossbody strap, perfect for the practical minimalist. It has an adjustable leather strap, zip closure and a lined interior with one pocket.
Crimson + Feather features a Zapotec diamond and arrows design on deep wine red.
Designed by artisans Maria Luisa + Jose Luis. Maria Luisa comes from a family of four generations of weavers. She and her husband José Luis have two sons, the younger one in high school and the older one an accounting student at the University of Oaxaca. Though Maria Luisa enjoys every part of the weaving process, it’s combining colors that really makes her artistic heart sing and her purses are studies in subtle and complementary color-blocking and traditional patterns. José Luis does the stitching and leather finish work for Maria Luisa’s purses, with near-perfect seams and detailing. The family lives in Tlacochahuaya, a small town just a few miles away from Teotitlán del Valle, where most of the other MZ weavers live. “This work is very pleasing,” said Maria Luisa, “You weave practically your life into it. Each piece is just that, a stage … a piece of your life.”
