TRUSS Medium Woven Leather Trapezoid in Black
Woven with strips of black leather, the Small Top Handle is the handiwork of Don Lupe, one of our master weavers in Oaxaca. Created on a box loom, the shape is formed by weaving the leather through nail prongs that guide the weave—it's a very intricate process that takes at least a day to complete! And then we attach the top handle, magnetic closure, and the little feet at our workshop in Oaxaca.
The Medium Top Handle can hold your phone, daily essentials, and your notebook!
All our leather is sourced from Leon in Mexico. This style is unique to TRUSS and takes 2-3 days to weave and assemble by artisans in Mexico.
TRUSS is committed to forging sustainable relationships with the artisans of Mexico, working alongside each community to continue and expand on traditional techniques. Proceeds from your purchase directly aids in the development of these networks.
Additionally, TRUSS supports Fondo Guadalupe Musalem and their efforts to empower the young indigenous women of Oaxaca through education and mentorship.
