The artisan women of Tactic, Guatemala hand-weave this tote bag of cotton on the traditional backstrap loom. Mirian Otzin presents the bag, featuring stripes of sky blue over a body of navy. Multicolored geometric patterns that depict a procession of birds accentuate the bag at the center. It opens with a magnetic snap to reveal a cotton lining with a zipper pocket.
