Maria Elena Clutch in White by Catrinka
A bold and unforgettable clutch in this season's must-have color, red. The textile is a celebration of the diamonds pattern traditional to Chiapas, with a modern color combination. The large zip top interior has room for everything you need, and the front pocket keeps a cell phone close at hand.
In the textile, the design that looks like a cross on the edges is an orchid. In the local language where it was woven, totzil, it is called "K'urus e'ch". The blue diamonds mean the universe. These are traditional colors in Chiapas, updated in new combinations.

Textiles for the collection were handwoven by Mayan indigenous women weavers in Chiapas, Mexico. The bags were made by women in an ethical production group outside of Mexico City. The sale of each bag in the collection will provide a week of life skills mentoring for indigenous Mayan adolescent girls through Catrinka’s NGO partners. Catrinka uses all-natural products and zero waste production.
