About our bags. All our bags are made from Mayan huipils and high quality suede and leather. These huipils (or blouses as we call them) are intricately detailed, take 2-3 months to weave, are all one of a kind, and often tell a story about the weaver and where she is from. Often, weaving is the only skill these women posses as they don't know how to read or write and make very little money to support their families. We purchase these huipils directly from the weavers at fair trade wages and then turn them into hobo bags, tote bags, overnighters, cross bodies, wristlets and more giving them a sustainable income. All bags are lined and this style has an inside pocket as well as a zipper closure.
