The beautiful Accessory Bags below were hand embroidered by this little artisan and her mother. In Mayan culture, passing down this weaving tradition is part of the bonding process between mother and daughter. Each purchase made through Local + Lejos helps to preserve this tradition, while also providing the family the ability to buy water.
