This one of a kind marbled tan leather bag is just right! The bright shades of green, teal and blue capture the perfect reflection of the ocean under a bright full moon. This pattern was woven into a stunning textile by a Mayan woman in the Chichicastengo region of Guatemala. It has a handy zippered front pocket and side leather slip pockets.
The fair trade materials and work were all made in Guatemala in the Chichicastenango region. The vintage textiles are sold in a fair trade market and upcycled into this bag. The bag is entirely handcrafted. The only machinery used in its creation was a sewing machine to stitch it together.
The leather backpack straps are adjustable so you can make it just the right length to be comfortable for you.
These bags are fair trade, sustainable fashion and unique. They are made from custom woven Huipils, or shirts, woven on backstrap looms by Mayan women in Guatemala. Each huipil tells the story of the woman who created it. The history, skill and meaning behind each huipil has been handed down for generations.
The bag is entirely handcrafted with full grain marbled leather. There are natural marks and lines in the leather that are natural to the leather. This bag will keep getting better with time!
The interior has a leather trimmed zippered compartment and large slip pocket for a cell phone and your miscellaneous goodies. It has a plastic zipper and high quality silver tone hardware. The interior is lined with beautiful handmade plaid Corte fabric with sparkle threads.
Size: 11.5”h x 10”w x 5”d
