Dazzle Gift Set
This dazzling collection showcases the weaving traditions of Chiapas, where Maya women work on the backstrap loom just as their ancestors did in pre-Hispanic times. A red cotton tote features rainbow stripes and embroidered flowers on the front. The purse opens to a roomy, unlined interior for your belongings. The handwoven floral cosmetic bag is also embroidered. Inside is a small zipper pocket.
A petite copal wood owl alebrije adorns the key chain. They originated in 1936 in Mexico City when Pedro Linares became ill and fell into a coma. He dreamed he was caught between the land of the living and the dead in a forest-like place, populated with fantastical hybrid creatures. They repeatedly cried alebrije! After recovering, the artisan recreated these figures in bright papier mache and called them alebrijes.
Two petite beaded bracelets complete the set.
