🌈THE RAINBOW CLUTCH BAG: The elaboration of this bag is a very complex process. The leaves of a special palm found in the region of Puebla, Mexico, are carefully chosen, cut and put in the sun to dry for a very specific time. This raw material is used to weave large sheets of "petate" and later these sheets are dyed and softened again with steam so that the fibers of palm do not later fall apart. Then the shapes patterns for different types of bags or purses are cut, lining and biases are added and sewn together with nylon thread.
The embroidery with bead-work and sequin is done by hand putting one bead at a time. The patterns are inspired by the typical costume of“china poblana”native to the region of Puebla, Mexico.
The elaboration of a single bag embroidered with beads can take up to 3 weeks!
