Stripe Maguey Bag
1 in stock
This maguey bag is woven from natural fibres extracted from the leaf of the Agave cactus. The fibre, also known as ixtle is plied into a coarse, durable cord using a technique called thigh-spinning. The cord is then woven around a mould into a net structure allowing it to expand and contract as the bag is filled and emptied. A simple adjustable leather strap is then threaded through two loops. This maguey bag takes one artisan over two whole weeks to complete.
Approx: 34 x 34cm
Adjustable strap 107cm
Treat strap with leather conditioner occasionally to keep it supple.
