Tote bags, man bags, purses and laptop cases
Is your laptop case black nylon like everyone else’s? Do you need a purse that says ‘Guatemala’? Are you man enough to carry a hand-woven and embroidered bag? In this activity, you’ll work with local seamstresses on treadle machines to make your own tote. You’ll have a wide array of hand-made indigenous fabrics or burlap coffee sacks from which to start your creating.
