Proud Mary Bucket Bags: Artisan-Made in Guatemala

I love these pastel-hued bucket bags for Spring 2012 by Proud Mary. All are beautifully hand-woven and sewn by artisans in Guatemala. Proud Mary works with textile artisans in both Mali, West Africa, and Guatemala for the production of their high quality, fair trade designs.

"We create unique, handcrafted patterned goods that are made in a socially and ecologically responsible manner. Our aim is to establish healthy relationships with artisans in developing nations. These relationships offer a beneficial exchange of ideas and resources. Purchasing product along with access to new markets provides economic growth for the artisan and their families. Through our products, we hope to share the stories of the hands by which they are made. "
