Pre-Sale Medium Almolonga Hobo with Xela Leather
Pre-Sale with ETA of February 21-25 from Guatemala
Fully handmade by an artisan family in a small workshop in Chichicastenango, Guatemala which ensures good working conditions and a fair wage.
The bag is made from a vintage Huipil (pronounced wee-peel). 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: 13” H x 16”L
The removable shoulder and braided hand straps make it versatile.
