The volcano-shaped motif that this bag carries was proposed by the illustrator and designer Manuel Vargas, whose objective is to maintain a relationship with nature to highlight the symbolic nature of each element in the imagination of some locations. The digital illustrations were shared with two artisan groups that masterfully woven a canvas on a waist loom to later be embroidered by hand, it has an internal bag for accessories.

Fundación León XIII
Fundación León XII IAP (FLXIII) is a Private Assistance Institution established in 1996 as a response to the conditions of marginalization and exclusion of communities in Chiapas, Oaxaca and Guerrero.
We are present in more than 300 rural, indigenous and Afro-mestizo communities of less than 3,000 inhabitants, without social security, with an educational gap and with limited access to food, basic housing services and health services.
