Maguey Produce Bag
UPDATE May 30, 2020: The most recent batch made by Doña Candelaria came with extra long straps, as can be seen in one of the images. We will leave the straps long so that each person can cut and adjust length as desired.
The maguey fiber is rustic and completely natural, harvested from large succulent leaves (think agave). It is a laborious process to convert the leaves into a rope-like structure to be used for these knit bags.
Only one individual from our partner cooperative in Cobán works with this fiber. Each and every one of these bags have been made by Doña Candelaria.
We think these small and all-natural bags make excellent produce bags for going to the local farmer's market and/or organizing produce at home. Keep your limes, avocados, onions, potatoes... all the goodies in a bag. Each to reach and clean. They are also aesthetically-appealing and make a good reminder of handmade traditions.
Width: 11 inches
Height: 10 inches
Please note that this is a rough knit, the size may vary slightly and the bag itself is able to stretch due to the knit structure. Bags now being sold in individual units (previously in packs of three).
This item ships directly from Guatemala.
