Wool shoulder bag, 'Valley Flower' (Peru)

Lush flowers blossoming by crystalline springs in Andean valleys inspire the design of this shoulder bag by Raul Ulloa. It is stylized after the mail bags used by Inca chasquis (messengers). Other than post, they would also carry coca leaves to chew on their voyages. This wool bag is woven on a pedal loom and finished by hand in legendary Ayacucho style. Fully lined, it has two practical pockets.
