Handmade from a group of skilled artisans called “The Floras de Choco”, they live in the cloudforest of Intag, Ecuador. These women use an ancient crafting technique to create products from cabuya, a native cactus fiber.
This woven tote bag is handmade from an all-natural, plant-dyed cactus fiber with an adjustable cabuya tie strap to wear over the shoulder. This reusable bag is perfect for trips to the market, a beach trip, your everyday purse, and more! Strong enough to hold fruits and veggies, or your essentials for a picnic, this bag will naturally stretch and expand with use.

Every Minga bag has been ethically sourced for a mutually agreed upon, fairtrade price and provides work to our artisan partners, a collaborative group of 18 women living in a remote region of Ecuador.
Our bags are handmade and one-of-a-kind. This means that no two are exactly alike and almost all contain irregularities from size to styles to color. Please allow for slight imperfections as this is what adds to the unique character of each bag.
