Description
The perfect weekender, made for incredible getaways or local stays.  The colorful cotton textile is a recycled traditional Mayan blouse, or huipil.  There is a suede trim and a zip top closure.  Inside is lined and features a zip pocket.  Top handles with a removable and adjustable long strap.  Additional zip pocket on the front, exterior of the bag.

Each of the recycled textiles takes 4-12 weeks to hand weave on back strap looms or foot looms, a Mayan tradition that has been passed on for centuries.  Nearly every aspect has symbolic meaning and each unique design tells the mythology and history of the region it is from.

This particular design is from Quetzaltenango, which means land of the Quetzal, the national bird of Guatemala, in Mayan.  Quetzaltenango is the second largest city in Guatemala located in a broad valley surrounded by 10 volcanoes.  Huipils from this region are known for the brightly colored flowers that are so intricate they need to be hand embroidered on to the foot loomed textile..
