Upcycled Shoulder Bag - Polychrome Huipil

$40.00

Our weavers' creations will always amaze you with their lively and bright colors, obtained by relying on the lush and kaleidoscopic nature of Guatemala.


These precious bags are all naturally dyed with pigments that come from local plants and flowers, carrying on the tradition of color making that dates back to the times of the ancient Mayans.


Painting life with a multitude of intense shades and hues is part of the inestimable cultural identity of our craftswomen, who commit to preserving the natural source of their creativity and inspiration by pursuing a sustainable fashion business model that is 100% zero-waste.


Each of these accessories is indeed made with upcycled parts of Guatemalan huipiles, the traditional upper sections of the traditional Mayan dress. The result is a new life for these refined and exquisite fabrics, whose designs and colors are world-renowned for their high quality and cultural value.
