This little butterfly Hobo bag is the perfect size for a woman on the go!!!! It has all of the elegance of a vintage huipil packed in a small purse. It is made  from a vintage Huipil (pronounced wee-peel), which is a blouse traditionally worn by Mayan women. Each design is different and tells a story of the woman who created it. 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.  A huipil can take several months to complete depending on the design.  This huipil was purchased from an artisan who has  up-cycled it into this gorgeous convertible day bag, aka CDB. 

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: 9.5” H x 14” L x v4” W

This bag comes with a braided shorty strap and removable shoulder and backpack straps for convertible wear three different ways....crossbody, shoulder bag or backpack.

The Interior is lined with Corte with a zipper pocket, two side pockets and a key fob.
 

There are round pockets on the front and back of the bag for all of your personal items.  

Fully handmade by an artisan family in a small workshop in Antigua, Guatemala which ensures good working conditions and a fair wage.
