Behind the Seams: País Textil - Cotton Pouch

Posted on 06 November 2017

The País Textil Cotton Pouch is one of the products selected by ABURY from País Textil in Peru. This cotton pouch is a true example of minimal- contemporary design made using a traditional craft. For a chic working woman, this classic pouch comes to use more than one. From carrying stationary like pens and markers for a designer to carrying everyday balms and creams in your handbag, this pouch fits in all. Available in both monochrome combinations as well as some quirky pink tassels, this pouch is a statement. One can be sure of its quality as it is handmade in cotton textile by skilled female artisans in the Peruvian highlands. The stripes on this design pouch compliment the feminine tassels bringing the classic and playfulness together. With the design, the functionality has been kept simple with a zipper.

To tell you more about the interesting background of this product, it was made by a team of master weavers who develop swatches and keep the textile tradition authentic in Peru. From quality controllers, tassel makers, crochet knitters to hand spinners, they together create collections that preserve textile traditions and beautifully marry them with contemporary design. Mostly it is groups of women artisans working on these collections. The sophisticated collection includes a collection of pillows, bags, pouches and other utility items.

We bring you a closer look of the black and white País Textil Cotton Pouch with its intricate details of materials, techniques and the design process.
