Description
Vibrant shoulder bag beautifully handwoven.  Colorful silk threaded textile with luxurious leather panels.  A zip top closure, top handles, and a removable and adjustable long strap. This colorful accent piece has an exterior front zip pocket and interior zip pocket.  The perfect every day bag to store all of your daily essentials.

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 Nahualá, which means enchanted waters.  Huipils from this region are known for the brightly colored geometric patterns that often feature squares and diamonds, which represent the four principal directions of East, West, North, and South.  The spirals included represent the levels of Mayan reincarnation and the colors are intentionally color bled on to the white base, a feature that is specific to Nahualá.
