Comfortable purse is hand-stitched by Mayan Indians of Guatemala using recycled huipil (pronounced wee-peel), a traditional blouse worn by Mayan women. Huipil designs represent the personalities and villages that the original wearer was from including marital, wealth and religious status. Purse includes two compartments, the main pocket features a fabric lining and a zipper closure and the small front pocket has a button closure. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted purse. Testing for colorfastness is recommended.
The creation of this hand-stitched purse helps support Mayan families through fair wage and improved living conditions. With the income these traditional arts supply, Mayan mothers are able to keep their children in school.
