  • Description

    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. The huipil pattern of this pouch varies within a blue color scheme. The Recycled Huipil Pouch is handcrafted by artisans working with our fair trade partner Ruth & Naomi. Formed to create jobs for women widowed by civil war, the group continues to provide economic and educational opportunities for the community.
