Handmade from skilled artisans, this tote bag is woven from an all-natural, plant-dyed plant fiber and uses high quality, vegetable tanned leather.
The Celia Large Tote #006 features a classic deep earth brown color with contrasting saddle tan straps. A classic silhouette and color that will last for years.
This large, versatile bag has leather handles to carry in hand or around your shoulder or forearm. It has a linen inner lining and the leather base guarantees durability. A leather inner pocket is included for storing phones or wallets.
Modern design meets traditional methods and each bag takes 30+ steps to complete. From harvesting the cacti fiber to botanically dying each color, these totes are unlike any other.
Equally as awesome, each bag helps keep tradition alive, supporting a woman-led collective in remote Ecuador.
