One of a Kind - Guatemalan Huipil Bag
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 and huipil 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!
