The Goddess Ixchel

At the beginning of time, the Moon Goddess Ixchel taught the first woman to weave. Preserving the beautiful tradition of backstrap weaving, Cristina For Fair Trade handbags are handcrafted by Maya Traditions artisans. Using ancient weaving techniques exquisite textiles are created in honour of the moon goddess. And designed for the goddess in you.
