Mini Messenger 2
The Mini Messenger is great for the times when you just don't need to carry much. It's light, it's practical with three inner pockets, and it's easy.
The outer textile features a handwoven traditional brocade textile from Tecpán. The modern color choice makes this piece eye-catching. The floral design is handwoven using an advanced brocade technique, which allows for such figures to emerge on the loom. Floral patterns like these were first inspired by European cross stitch patterns, but since then have become part of traditional designs in this town.
The inner lining is a naturally-dyed, handwoven textile produced by our partner weavers at Lake Atitlán. There is a small leather latch for attaching keys inside. The crossbody buckle is adjustable, as is the closing flap of the bag. The leather is a locally-produced genuine leather.
