shop cestas

These cesta totes are ixöq's signature product and our most popular item. They come in three different sizes and a variety of designs and colors.

Designed by ixöq and handwoven by our partner artisans in San Cristóbal, Totonicapán, using threads of recycled plastic, these ‘cesta’ totes are modeled on the traditional Guatemalan market bags and modified to suit the US market. These totes are perfect at the beach, the market, as a carry-on, for the office, the gym, basically anywhere that you'd like an attractive and sturdy carry-all bag. They are very durable and easy to wipe down/clean and they are 100% vegan. It will be the best bag you ever had! We promise.

All ixöq products are ethically made, sustainable sourced and follow fair trade standards. We work directly with our partner artisans on each custom order and guarantee we pay a fair wage.
