New to the collection is the Leather Top Handle that is woven with strips of black leather and bright plastic. This is the handiwork of Don Lupe, one of our master leather weavers in Oaxaca. Created on a box loom, the shape is formed by weaving the leather and plastic 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 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. Proceeds from your purchase aids in the development of artisan communities in Mexico and our work with the women's education foundation Fondo Guadalupe Musalem.
