Ethical and Sustainable
Handmade with Love
Timeless Forever Pieces
Designed in Venice, California
This leather bag can be worn as a backpack or as a shoulder bag. It was made from a hand-woven, vintage Guatemalan huipil (a traditional Guatemalan blouse worn by the indigenous women of Mexico and Guatemala). It was completely handmade by Mayan artisans using re-purposed, sustainable textiles. Because it was made with vintage pieces, it may have slight imperfections which is part of its uniqueness. It is one-of-a-kind. No other bag exists exactly like it.
The colors, weaving style, patterns, and symbols in the huipiles all reflect the history and traditions of the village where the weaver who made it comes from and carry spiritual and social significance.
