This soft leather tote is decorated with swirls and butterflies, as well as bright peacock feathers. Called mayura in Sanskrit, the peacock is found throughout Indian poetry and mythology.

Guatemalan Ikat and Leather Bag
Guatemalan Ikat and Leather Bag
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Accessories/Cultural Bags

Many pre-Columbian cultures have examples of woven fabrics dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. Guatemala is known for a type of weaving called double-ikat, which comes from an Indonesian word meaning “to bind.” In Ikat, threads are tie-dyed before being strung on the loom—this predetermines the pattern that will be created. Ikat can be used to create textiles of astonishingly intricate detail, as well as soft, blended patterns like on this punchy purple tote.
