Guatemalan Huipil Bag Medium Deer Hobo
This beautiful and rare vintage DEER huipil (pronounced wee-peel) is truly highlighted in this Boho bag!!!
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. Prounounced "She-lah", Xela leather is considered one of the finest in Guatemala.
Measures: 14” H x 16”L
The interior is beautiful Corte (Traditional skirt worn by Mayan women.) with leather trimmed pockets and key fob.
Braided leather shorty strap included.
The neckline of the huipil creates gorgeous round pockets front and back.
Fully handmade by an artisan family in a small workshop in Antigua, Guatemala which ensures good working conditions and a fair wage.
