Upcycled Beauty Bag - Polychrome Huipil

$38.90

At the time of the ancient Mayans, colors were everywhere and adorned murals, palaces, pottery, bodies, and even cocoa beans!
Everything needed to be highlighted by magnificent and unique pigments, not only to enhance its physical beauty...


Indeed, for the Mayans each color carried a special meaning, immediately recognised by all members of their communities, and even beyond: for instance, green was the color of the inestimable jade stone and thus was heavily used by kings and nobles to boast their royalty and power.
Red was the color of flames and of the sun, so it became soon the symbol of life and regeneration. Blue, on its part, was particularly important for being strictly connected to the divine and spiritual world.
Our weavers carry on the ancient color making and weaving traditions of their ancestors to create marvellous crafts gifted with a multicolored and warm personality.


These precious beauty bags showcase intense shades of green, blue and red that will energise your days, routines, and travels. Being also made with upcycled parts of the Guatemalan huipil, they will surely amaze you with their excellent and refined quality.


Check them out and let their breath-taking colors embrace you!
