Crocheted cotton man's bag with lettering of place
This old morral from Joyabaj (Department of Quiche) measures 13 x 11.5 inches. The bag was hand-crocheted of all cotton. The strap was hand-woven on a narrow belt loom, and is also cotton. The lettering appears in a single row and runs continuously around the bag. Both sides are pictured. As best as I can discern, the text reads as follows: "JOYABAJ EL qUICHE DEGUATEMALA". The glittery appearance is from a sparse use of metallic threads.
Condition: Very Good, lightly used but presenting no significant flaws. There has been a repair in the strap. This bag has been used and shows some wear and soil, but there is no significant damage and no holes.
