Traditional Netted Bag from Chiapas

Traditional Netted Bag from Chiapas


Very traditional in Chiapas this netted bag is made from the Maguey plant. The plant is dried and the plant material turned into a fiber that is woven. The result is a very flexible but strong fabric that expands to its contents.

The “mouth” of the bag is decorated with intricate weaving of pink, blue and green thread.

A leather strap is attached and can be changed out or adjusted for length.

Measures (not stretched) 8”x16”
