Upcycled Beauty Bag - Yum Kaax Huipil
The Mayan mythology showcases a myriad of powerful gods and creatures shrouded in the fogs of mystery.
Some of these enigmatic entities liked to be accompanied by a kaleidoscopic multitude of wild animals, flowers or plants in their errands to the human world.
Such is the case of Yum Kaax, the ancient Mayan god of the forests, who was worshipped by hunters for its power to control even the fiercest of beasts thanks to his melodic voice.
Our weavers' creative genius and skilful hands recycled parts of traditional huipiles to let you have a taste of Yum Kaax's strength and influence over nature: these precious bags indeed portray an array of creatures that inhabit the Guatemalan skies and waters, such as birds, fish, crabs and shrimps.
Thanks to their practical size, these exquisite accessories will also be the perfect keepers of your favorite cosmetics, toiletries... and all those little things that inevitably end up in the most obscure corners of your bag!
Do not waste any more time looking for your extravagant puff of keys or your leopard strawberry lip balm: enjoy discovering all the small details that make the Guatemalan huipil unique!
