Emily of Minga is a woman with ambition and spirit, using her keen eye for design to create a collection of bags unlike any we've ever seen. Handmade from skilled artisans, each bag is woven from an all-natural, plant-dyed cactus fiber and uses high quality, vegetable tanned leather.

The Carmen crossbody has a thicker leather strap and more space than the bucket or satchel style. The adjustable strap can be set to different lengths and the bag folds over to close with leather knot.

Sustainably & ethically sourced using fair trade practices, each Minga bag helps keep an ancient tradition alive, and more importantly, a whole community of women employed. 

Features:

  • Ethically handmade from cactus fiber
  • Naturally dyed from native plants 
  • Adjustable natural leather strap
  • Large enough to hold an iPad/ tablet
  • No inner lining or pocket
  • Due to handmade & dyed nature, each bag is one-of-a-kind
  •  Dimensions:

  • Size when folded: H 12" x W 10"
  • Size unfolded: H 14.5" x W 10"
  • Strap length: 42"
  • *See last image for context on size
  • About Minga's artisan partners: 

    Partnering with a lively, deeply talented group of 18 women in remote Ecuador, they use over 30 steps to create one bag. From harvesting this mountain cactus to dying the fiber with native barks, berries, and flowers, each bag is one-of-a-kind, and more importantly, keeping the tradition alive.
