Romantic, vintage, and charming! Our Heirloom collection combines the beauty and uniqueness of our handmade Huipil bags with glamour and vintage charm. Our Sandia bag is accented with up-cycled sari fabric and reproduction vintage pins. Each has been individually styled and it a limited edition, one of a kind. Sandia means Watermelon in Spanish and is the perfect name for the retro shaped bag.
Carry this bag as an arm bag, shoulder bag or with the crossbody strap included.
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 over the shoulder handles and a leather shoulder strap that can be removed. 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!
The interior has a leather trimmed zippered compartment for a cell phone and your miscellaneous goodies. It has a plastic zipper and high quality antique brass hardware. The interior is lined with beautiful handmade upgraded artisan Jaspe fabric.
