Handmade Open Weave Shoulder Strap Bags from the Peruvian Amazon

These boho style shoulder strap bags were handwoven by artisans native to the Peruvian Amazon, with natural and durable chambira palm fiber.  They are useful for carrying a laptop to a coffee shop, shopping in a outdoor market or toting your towel, good book and suntan lotion to the beach.  This simple, elegant open weave square crochet stitched bag is available in three designs.  One has dark yellow and maroon stripes on a black background, with a shoulder strap measuring 1.25" wide by 40" long and was crocheted by the Puca Urquillo Bora artisans. The second one has green, orange and purple stripes on a natural ivory chambira background, with a shoulder strap measuring  1" wide by 45" long, and was hand crocheted by Ampiyacu artisans (AM). The third bag features black stripes on a natural chambira ivory background, and a pretty blend of purple and natural ivory chambira in the shoulder strap, which measures 1" wide by 33" long, this bag hand crocheted by the JH artisan group.  These bags are comfortable, lightweight and the open weave design has an airy feel.
