We chose this beautiful vintage Indigo Shibori cloth from Burkina Faso, West Africa to create this special tote bag. The cotton cloth is a rich dark shade of indigo with a great Shibori pattern. We even kept the original hand knotted fringe hem and put it on the inside facing of the bag. The bag is fully lined with a natural canvas cloth and has an interior zipper pocket to hold all of your loose items. The straps are a heavy 9oz. brown leather and secured on with solid copper rivets.
