Handmade Open Weave Striped Double Strap Bags from the Peruvian Amazon

These boho style double 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 pattern is available in three designs.  One has black stripes on natural chambira background, with double straps measuring 1.5" wide by 26" long and crocheted by the Puca Urquillo Bora artisans. The other two models include a red, green, purple, maroon and natural chambira ivory stripes, and red, green and natural chambira ivory stripes by the Brillo Nuevo artisan group, with straps measuring 1" wide by 18" long. These bags are comfortable, lightweight and the open weave design has an airy feel.
