How are they made?
These bags are hand made by Esteban in the highlands of Guatemala. His mother is the lady in the picture weaving the cotton fabric. Guatemala is famous for its colourful textiles, and these bags use local cotton fabric, woven on traditional hand looms. The cotton fabric is hard wearing, and the use of suede helps to give structure to the bags; over time this will become softer.
What are they made from?
They are made from handwoven cotton and suede. The fabric has a little white flower design on a colourful background. The use of suede gives the bags some structure. The front label is made of leather and the lining is washable cotton.
No water please or just sponge clean the cotton parts. Remember that the makeup bags are handmade and they need to be cleaned carefully. Just clean with a brush without wetting the suede part.
