IKat Hand-Woven, Hand-Dyed Beaded Tote or Shoulder Bag with Beads
This small hand-woven, hand-dyed Tote Bag — created and designed by textile artist, Wini McQueen — holds your essentials: iPad, cellphone, wallet and keys, cosmetics, more.
This bag is the product of a 19-year collaboration between the artist and the weaving village of Katia, Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), where elderly women have spun threads of cotton grown in their fields and young men have woven strips like those that comprise this bag on ancient narrow looms for centuries.
This bag is approximately 7″ wide by 10″ long. Its sturdy web strap measures 42″ long and it has an inner pocket.
It can be hand washed, but the fringe should be tied to prevent tangling (personally, the artist prefers the tangled version!).
Each bag is packed with a descriptive card and photo, which makes for an especially meaningful gift (see the “Product Label” tab above).
