Guatemalan Bags

Our Guatemalan bags are made from vintage, upcycled huipiles which are traditional, embroidered blouses worn by Indigenous women in Central Mexico to Central America. The are hand-woven on a backstrap loom using techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years. 

Each of our huipil bags are one of a kind. The huipil designs are more than just beautiful embroidery, they have sacred, cultural and historical significance as each town has it's own unique pattern and motifs that set it apart from other villages.

All of our bags are fair trade. Every purchase empowers female artisans in Guatemala.
