Product description

Wear your heart on your shoulder with a handbag that's been artisan-crafted from colorful huipils (wee-peels), the traditional blouse worn by Mayan women in Guatemala. To the knowledgeable observer, a huipil identifies a woman's village, social and marital status, religious background, wealth, and individual personality, and a well-woven huipil can last 20 to 30 years before it's sold at market to start its second life as a rag, quilt, or handbag.

  • Meaures 14" high x 13" wide
  • Magnetic clasp closure
  • Lined with interior pocket for added organization
  • Available in Flower, Geometric, or Geometric & Flower patterns

Since these items are created from many different blouses, designs and styles will vary. Handmade in Guatemala and fair trade imported.
