The perfect very high-quality Bucket Bag is here at bellabydesignllc.com, and it never looked so good. A variety of colors are available with a range of styles--simple, classic, edgy--you'll be sure to find your favorite and customize it with care: with plenty of pockets for all your essentials; or without any compartments for an easy go-along style! There's plenty on offer no matter what type of lady you happen to be. The Bucket Bag is designed and manufactured by Susu Accessories, a Chicago Fair Trade business member. They work directly with over 350 Wayuu artisans; all breadwinner women, whose techniques have been passed down for generations from mothers to daughters
A simple yet sophisticated handbag that is perfect for when you're feeling stylish but don't want to carry a bulky bag. The natural wool feels gentle on your skin and the beautiful colors can make any outfit complete. Handmade using a single-string technique. Each one-of-a-kind piece takes up to 40 hours to make. The ancestral woven technique used guarantees the bag and strand will not lose their shape with use. Every Bucket Bag has a different base, representing the inspirational signature that the artisan embodies, and making each one unique. The Bucket Bag is the result of combining an avant-garde design by Susu Accessories with a traditional Wayuu knitting technique from Colombia. Raw materials are chosen to ensure that colors do not fade and that strands do not loosen
This Bucket Bag has traveled more than 2000 miles by truck and plane away from the hands of the Wayuu artisans in the Guajira, a region in the Northern part of Colombia straight to you. When you buy one or two of these bags, you are only showing your sophisticated style with a bold statement, but you are supporting real families who are working hard to help you look fantastic
