Details

Every detail contributes to the charm of this sling from artisans Nelson Hernandez and Wendhy Salones, from the cheery pastel pink color to the varicolored strap to the thin tasseled braids at each side. The Oaxacan artisans like to employ natural fibers in their work; here, they use 100% cotton thread on a backstrap loom, a technique favored by the Zapotec people of the region for centuries. The textile's pattern is created by interweaving cornsilk, kiwi, pale blue, and tangerine-colored threads. There's plenty of space for the essentials in the bag's interior which is lined with pink nylon fabric and closes securely with a zipper.
