Shoulder Purse Handcrafted by the People of Joyabaj Guatemala Fair Trade Import

Shoulder purse handcrafted in Joyabaj Guatemala. These beautiful purses are made from recycled huipils. A huipil (wee-peel) is a traditional blouse worn by Mayan women in Guatemala, and to the knowledgeable observer it identifies her village, social and marital status, religious background, wealth, and individual personality. A well-woven huipil can last 20 to 30 years before it's sold at market and starts a second life as a rag, quilt, or handbag. Since these items are created from many different blouses, designs and styles will vary slightly.

  • Single 47" strap (23-1/2" drop length)
