Maguey Pon Pon bag
Me llamo: Maguey Pon Pon bag
Soy de: Aldama, Chiapas
Descripción: José and other men in his village laboriously hand weave these beautiful bags from the maguey plant, the same plant used in the making of mezcal. The leaves of this spiny plant in the agave family are cut, then pounded to extract the fibers. The fibers are repeatedly washed until they are a pale straw color, then spun into a sturdy cord that is then woven into a sturdy bag. Each bag takes two months to create.
Note: Each bag is unique and varies slightly. Please indicate in a note if you have preference for tassel color, we will try to match, but cannot guarantee.
