The story... the Maguey Plant (or Agave Plant) is native to Mexico and is used in cooking, to make mescal and for it's durable fibres. The fibres are stripped from the Maguey's leaf and spun together to create strong cords. These cords are then hand netted together to create this finished bag. The bag is smoked over an open fire to turn the fibres into a warm tobacco brown.
