The MayaBags® Recycled Rice Bag Shopper or Carry All
Loving the graphics on the plastic woven bags used for packing rice, flour, dolomite and other goods and wanting to save land fills from more trash, we decided to hand embroider the gaphics on the bags used in Belize and turn them into large shoppers, beach bags, or carry alls. Best, the embroidery also puts the Maya women who are artisanal embroiderers to work. So, they’re saving our planet and helping preserve traditional Maya hand skills one bag at a time!
