The collection of bags created by Tarabuqueños range from small shoulder bags to the traditional sized male chuspa. The small bags and chupsa use the tradition images found in the weavings, such as Pujillay celebrations, preparing chica, farming scenes or local animals. Every product is decorated on one side, with a traditional “stripped” design on their flipside.

*The small bags and chuspa have long straps, to facilitate easy wear either on the shoulder or across the body, and do not have fasteners, though these can be added on request. The small bags will hold the basic essentials of a phone, wallet and keys, whilst the larger chuspa will easily facilitate these plus other essentials. The price of both types of bags varies slightly according to its exact size.

 

Every product created is unique, an individual expression of its artist. Consequently, the photographs shown here are only examples, not the actual products available to buy. If you wish to order any of the products seen here, you can specify the colours wanted, but we can not promise to deliver any exact reproductions.

The male artisans offer two new types of bags, both drawing upon the traditional designs and techniques which have been applied in new and exciting ways.

*The “small faces” bag consist of four rows of four individual “tab” style faces, ranging from cats to alpacas, mythical statuesque faces, and the men themselves, backed onto a woven, olive green bag. The bags have long straps, to facilitate easy wear either on the shoulder or across the body, and do not have fasteners, though these can be added on request. The price of the bag is fixed, though we can not guarantee the exact same combination of faces and colours as shown here, as every product varies slightly.

With a funky zig-zag bottom, the bags have long straps, to facilitate easy wear either on the shoulder or across the body, and do not have fasteners, though these can be added on request. A relatively new product, as with the other male artisanal bag, we predict that these will be particularly popular with the youth market. The price, size and colours of these bags are fixed.
