100% cotton Brocade Clutch – gray olive. Lined, metal zipper with color matching tassel pull.  

Brocade is handwoven on Backstrap looms in Guatemala by Maya female artisans as a family tradition and perfected over more than a century.   The loom is very basic, just a few small pieces of wood, but with this simple tool the master weavers create vibrant and intricate textile art works.  It is also called Supplementary weaving, which is a decorative weaving pedal loom technique in which additional threads are woven into a textile to create an ornamental pattern in addition to the ground pattern. The supplementary weave can be of the warp or of the weft.  On the supplementary of the warp weaving, an additional set of threads are incorporated in the warp to create the design.   

The intricate pattern is simultaneously embroidered while weaving the base panel. Every element of the design is meticulously hand stitched and woven, a highly skilled process that takes weeks to craft a single piece.  A single wide-ranging palette of threads was used across the communities in order to craft this unique fabric to bring your customers a astonishing cosmetic bag.
