The belt leather bag is designed to be both chic and utilitarian. With one small zipper pocket up front covered by a clasped flap, as well as two larger zippered pockets on the top, it is more than enough to keep all your necessities organized. The first pocket has 6 credit card slots attached to a larger pocket, the second is one large pocket.

These bags are made in San Juan La Laguna by Manuela who is part of a women's coop who are survivors of domestic abuse. They are made from cow leather from a local farm and leftover pieces of huipil for the ornate embroidery. The soft full grain leather is made with environmentally friendly methods using the entire cow and sustainable tanning methods which only gets better with age.

The embroidered fabric used is called “huipil”. The word huipil comes from the Náhuatl word huipilli, meaning “my covering". The fabric is made using hand picked cotton that is then spindled in to yarn. The yarn is then vegetable dyed and woven entirely by hand using a traditional back loom. This technique has been taught from generation to generation for thousands of years among Mayan women. Each huipil is a distinct masterpiece of handwork and can take up to six months of work. Using leftover pieces allows for each bag to be completely unique while maintaining our fair wage practices. 

The bag can be worn cross body, on shoulder, or as belt. Bag is 8.5" width x 5.5" tall x 2" depth. The belt goes from 31 to 51 inches.

By purchasing this bag, you are allowing us to continue helping disenfranchised Guatemalan women artisans to continue making these traditional pieces of history for many generations to come while earning equitable, fair wage, and continuous income.
