What an awesome bag! Reminiscent of antique doctor’s bags, this oversized bag will surely be your bag for everything!!! No shortage of details and refinements, you’ll adore our Dawn Overnight bag! With an extra wide opening and a double zipper you have easy access to all your items.
Availability of this bag is limited as very few huipiles are large enough to be able to use in their creation, making each more unique and special.
This one of a kind vibrant shrimp soft xela full grain leather bag is absolutely amazing! The vintage woven Huipil has a stunning pattern that includes quetzals, the national bird of Guatemala and a stunning variety of flowers and fruit. This pattern was embroidered into a stunning textile by a Mayan woman of Guatemala in the Chichicastenango region. The colors of this bag are vibrant and rich.
The fair trade materials and work were all made in Guatemala. The vintage textiles are sold in a fair trade market and upcycled into this bag. The bag is entirely handcrafted.
These bags are fair trade, sustainable fashion and unique. They are made from vintage 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 soft full grain leather with long over the shoulder handles and a leather shoulder strap that connects to a D ring behind a handle front and back. There are natural marks and lines in the leather that are part of the hide of the leather. This bag will keep getting better with time! A large leather tassel adorns each of the double zipper pulls.
The interior has a leather trimmed zippered compartment and two pockets 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.
