The interior is beautiful Corte (Traditional skirt worn by Mayan women.) with leather trimmed pockets and a zipper pocket.
Gorgeous Zunil pockets compliment the huipil perfectly.
Shoulder strap and backpack straps are included to make the bag convertible three ways.
The hidden pockets are so convenient 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.
