These colorful backpacks are handwoven using a backstrap loom. The backpacks are roughly 30 inches in diameter and can hold most tablets, notebooks, and small laptops. Each has a drawstring closure and is adorned with a Borucan mask to fasten the flap covering.
Since they are handmade in small quantities, the backpack you receive will not have exactly the same color scheme as shown in the photos. The colors you choose will be the dominant colors, though.
Boruca is an indigenous tribe located in the mountains of South-Central Costa Rica. Time-honored hand weaving of naturally colored cotton thread was used to make each bag.
Mexico healthcare system does not provide dental treatment so even checkups are too expensive for many. We are funding free education, dental products, and then follow-up treatment from local dentists.
