  • 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. Carry the Todos Los Santos Bag, featuring huipil patches, on your next weekend getaway! This bag 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.
