Bamboo Chenille Large Handbag
Our large bamboo chenille handbag is luxurious, soft, roomy, and convenient to use.
The fabric is handwoven from bamboo chenille yarn hand-dyed in small batches (the warp) and hand-dyed cotton thread (the weft) on traditional backstrap looms. Exceptionally well-tailored by the co-op’s tailors, some of the best in Guatemala. Keep organized with an open pocket on the outside (large enough for your cellphone, for instance) and a zippered pocket on the inside opposite side. Lined with cotton fabric. Foam interfacing in the bottom helps the bag keep its shape. Large is large enough to carry an 8.5 x 11 notebook and lots more. Zips shut.
13.5”W x 11.5”H x 4.5” D, 43-44” x 1.25” strap. 20” drop length.
50% bamboo chenille, 50% cotton
The chenille yarn is very high quality, made from sustainably-grown organic bamboo thread in China, is colorfast, and will not rub off onto your clothing or pill.

Hand wash in cold water with mild soap such as hair or baby shampoo, lay flat until almost dry, then “fluff up” briefly (three minutes) with a fabric softener sheet in a dryer set on low-heat gentle.
Always use fabric softener and minimize agitation and heat. Agitation will eventually remove the pile from the chenille. Heat could shrink your item.
For creases or a too-worn look, freshen up by spritzing with water and drying as above. Or hang in a steamy bathroom.
The fabric has already been washed by hand and dried as above, in Guatemala.
Or you may have your handbag professionally dry cleaned.
