Bolsa Jipi japa 

Jipi Japa palm handbag

Jit pook cooh collective makes palm objects by hand in the State of Campeche, Mexico.
This small collective of Mayan women has been weaving palm for generations, growing the jipijapa plant in their yard then cutting the leaves finely before drying them in the sun. The dry strips are then brought to the underground cave in their yard where the natural humidity of the earth softens the fibers so that they can be woven without breaking. Each handbag is an unique and precious artefact created by skilled craftswomen.
