Looking for a great bag with an even greater cause? Christian Louboutin and Taller Maya have teamed up to create a tote bag that celebrates the vibrancy and colour of Mexico while also giving back to its rural community. Taller Mayer is part of Fundación Haciendas del Mundo Maya, a non-profit organisation that helps communities in Yucatan Peninsula implement projects for economic and social growth. Made with the help of local Mayan artisans, the bright and vivid tote bag features hand-woven cotton panels, bone beads made from the horns of bull cattle and traditional Mayan embroidery.

A prime example of how fashion can have a positive impact on those in need, Christian Louboutin will be donating 10% of bag sales directly to Taller Maya in order to help make a difference through preserving authentic craftsmanship. The artisans will also be paid equitably for their time spent helping to create this beautiful artifact. Wear it with a long black dress and you’ll stand out for all the right reasons.
