Truss' first custom collaboration with their artisans, the Crossbody Tote is ideal for the woman on the go (so, every woman). Large enough to fit all your essentials, plus maybe that book you've been meaning to read, it has a detachable long leather strap that fits either over your shoulder or across your body. Handwoven in Oaxaca, the tote takes 2 days to weave and is later assembled with leather finishes and rubberized nickel hardware at our all-women workshop.
Proceeds from your purchase aids in the development of artisan communities in Mexico and our work with the womens education foundation Fondo Guadalupe Musalem.
Body size: 11'' x 9.4'' x 4'' Handle drop: 4" Leather strap drop: 47''
Bottom studs and snap button closure in rubberized nickel Unlined
