Upcycled Fanny Pack - Estilo Todos Santos
Compact and spacious, sporty and fashionable, extremely smooth and resistant.
No, we are not practising our poetic skills with oxymorons: we are trying to enlist a few of the many qualities that our fanny packs possess!
Directly from the Todos Santos region of the Western Highlands of Guatemala, these gems were crafted by our wondrous weavers using very special ingredients: locally-made natural dyes and upcycled parts of traditional huipiles.
Thanks to indigo-based dyes, the main texture of our accessories displays a rare, deep navy blue tone that perfectly marries the bright colors of Guatemalan huipiles. Turned into shiny trims, they showcase refined ancient Mayan patterns that make the personality of our fanny packs even stronger: they indeed embody the invaluable artistry and cultural heritage of their craftswomen.
Last but not least, these jewels will be the best buddies for all your outdoor activities: from hikes to city tours, they will comfortably store all essentials without overloading your hips or shoulder.
