Vintage Huipil Bag with Custom Embroidered Pockets
Boho vibes all around with this gorgeous bag made from a vintage Huipil (pronounced wee-peel).
Measures: 13” H x 16” L
The special custom pockets on this bag are intricately embroidered with an exquisite design.
The interior is beautiful Corte (Traditional skirt worn by Mayan women.) with leather trimmed pockets and a zipper pocket.
Shoulder strap and backpack straps are included to make the bag convertible three ways.
The neckline of the huipil creates gorgeous pockets front and back.
A huipil is woven on a backstrap loom, which consists of 5-6 pieces of wood and a strap that goes around the weaver's waist, making her part of the loom.
The leather used in this bag is soft and luxurious and made in Quetzaltenango, nicknamed by locals as Xela. Pronounced "She-lah", Xela leather is considered one of the finest in Guatemala.
Fully handmade by an artisan family in a small workshop in Chichicastenango, Guatemala which ensures good working conditions and a sustainable income.
