Every once in a while we see irresistibly beautiful items made from textiles that our sources have available for purchase, and this one is no exception! We have this now available for our customers.
This new, beautifully constructed, and wonderfully unique backpack is made from a Guatemala Maya huipil blouse!
Elegant deep red and white background with loads of striking geomorphic figures of men, women, birds, and deer throughout. The back is done in a coordinating striped huipil fabric from the region. The backpack is accented with a thick, rich, sueded leather trim. The textile can be seen on the front, back and sides of this stunning bag.
This backpack is sturdy enough to carry notebooks for class, and elegant enough to carry as a purse. It has a generous gathered closure topped by a buckle flap for the large, central pocket. There is also a small zippered pocket on the inside, which is perfect for keys, cellphone, lipstick or whatever! There is a medium-sized zippered pocket on the front for quick access.
This bag is made with quality in mind, and it shows! The stitching is even and straight, the leather is top quality, and the vintage huipil used is in excellent condition. This backpack was made to last!
