The beautiful hand woven fabric of this cosmetic pouch comes from the village of Comalapa in Guatemala. This is a traditional geometric design woven on a backstrap loom, and artisans have practiced this time consuming technique for hundreds of years. However, this art is rapidly disappearing as consumers are switching to cheaper mass market alternatives. .


Purchase of this hand crafted, lined cosmetic bag provides fair wage employment to the artisans of Manos Presiosas in Guatemala. Since 1990, the artisans have also had access to medical services, educational programs and microloans.

Each Global Shokunin product is unique and made by hand using traditional techniques. Slight variations in size and color are normal due to the natural materials, and handwoven nature of these products. Enjoy and show off your eclectic taste!
