Upcycled Beauty Bag - Striped Huipil

$40.00

One of the many magnificent features of the Guatemalan huipil, the upper section of the Mayan traditional dress, is the use of refined crafty dyes to give its cotton fibres bright and vivid colors.
Even when the dress has come to the end of its days, the superb shades of its threads continue to spread radiant light and true wonder.


Our weavers cherished the longevity of their precious creations and gave them a new life, in light also of their commitment to developing a greener business model, where worn off clothes can be transformed into high-quality accessories instead of unnecessary waste.


These lovely handbags embody this promise of a new beginning and showcase all the strength and beauty of our huipiles' tones and patterns... to keep alive the fascinating stories that their symbols secretly tell.


Take a closer look and let the warm and lively personality of these unique crafts embrace you: they will indeed be the perfect companions of your daily routine and adventurous travels, keeping safe all your tiny items, toiletries... and secrets too!
