    Each purse has a unique waist loom woven pattern and comes in a variety of colours. This variety of woven is made in Chiapas, in the southeast of Mexico by Mayan women. Weavings are made on a back-strap loom using a process called brocade, this process consists on creating designs as they weave. This back-strap loom gets its name from the way it is attached to the artisan’s body. At one end, the artisan ties the bottom of the loom around her/his lower back using a wide leather belt. On the other end of the loom, the weaver attaches it to a fixed and sturdy object such as a tree.
