    Product Details

    The indigo wool is complemented beautifully by a warm cognac leather, unpainted and unlined. The bag is stitched simply without the need for plastic fillers, toxic glues or chemicals. Our partner weavers come from a community that is famous for its natural dyes, particularly of wool, and its weaving.

    The woman behind the bag: Josefina Jimenez is from Teotitlan del Valle, the ethnic Zapotec community famous for its wool and weaving, in the state of Oaxaca. She is part of a group of 10 women called D`Gunna Ruy Che Lady, which means women who weave. “ My work is weaving, it is the work that comes from my grandparents, passing from generation to generation, it is what I like to do.” She says the process of working with natural dyes is long but “ this work is so beautiful, so unique when you finish something that you put so much work into you value it so much When people buy our products in places like the United States, France, it makes us very happy. We work with more emotion knowing that people far away appreciate them so much.”

    The group organized themselves in 1992 to seek a loan to improve their weaving equipment and be able to fulfill larger orders. “It was very hard for us, it was the first group that formed in our community where women have been accustomed to be in the home, looking after their husband and children, so it was an affront really to the community and to our families, many of them were not supportive of women going outside the pueblo.”

    Josefina has learned a lot through workshops with our artisan partner La Red Niumatat, including about her rights. “ For women, the right to the land is the most important. In our community women don’t have the right to land. They have made us believe it is only for men. When you have a son it belongs to him and then girls live with their husbands. If a woman doesn’t get married, she doesn’t have right to anything. I have my land and I am very happy I got it thinking of myself and my rights.
