One of a Kind - Guatemalan Huipil Backpack

The ultimate back-to-school backpack, each of these Guatemalan leather backpacks is as colorful as it is cultural. Each colorful backpack is handmade from sueded leather andhuipil fabric used for traje tipico or traditional dress in different regions of Guatemala. Coupled with padded backs made of multicolored traditional jaspe textiles, each one of these colorful leather backpacks is as unique as you are.

The red huipil fabrics are from the town of Nebaj, home to the indigenous Ixil of northern Guatemala. Each one of a kind leather huipil backpack is made of hand loomed, naturally dyed huipil fabric and celebrates and supports the uniquely colorful Mayan culture of the Ixil.

The more modern multicolor triangular designs are from the community of San Martin Jilotepeque, Chimaltenengo, Guatemala.

Featuring zippered leather side utility pockets, an outer zippered leather lined pocket, a zippered stash pocket on the flap, adjustable leather clasp and straps, a tasseled leather drawstring main compartment, and a zippered inner pocket, this unique leather backpack is truly one for the books!

Each one of a kind leather Huipil backpack is a work of art, and as such unique variations in color and design are expected and celebrated

Since much of our clothing is hand-made in countries with different methods of sizing, it is important to note the measurements listed below each item on the individual product pages. We have taken extra care to provide you with the most accurate measurements possible by measuring all items ourselves before they are put up on our website.

Mexicali Blues started in 1988, born of a love of travel and a mindful devotion to fun. In the beginning most of our wares consisted of handwoven Mexican baskets and handicrafts, as well as Grateful Dead merchandise. The name was suggested by our founder Pete Erskine's brother, as inspired by the Grateful Dead song (Mexicali Blues). Since then, Mexicali Blues has become more than just a name, it is a brand, an identity, and a lifestyle. We now responsibly import clothing, jewelry, and home decor from eight different countries, not just Mexico, but our name stuck and hey, we like it that way. Learn more about our history here ✌️
