Coffee & Cotton Weekender Bag Handcrafted in Guatemala

In the Guatemalan highlands, women still wear traditional Mayan dress. Blouses, called huipils, are woven on a backstrap loom. The distinctive patterns of both huipils and skirts vary by region; they are unique to a place, symbols of identity. This burlap Weekender Bag incorporates upcycled huipil and skirt fabric from Chichicastenango, near the village of Chontola, where workshop of artisan partner group Ruth & Naomi is located. Formed to create jobs for women widowed by civil war, the group continues to provide economic and educational opportunities for the community. A beautiful Global Fair Trade gift.
