Huipil is a loose fitting tunic worn by indigenous women from Mexico to Central America. Traditional huipils, especially ceremonial ones, are usually made with fabric woven on a backstrap loom and are heavily decorated with designs woven into the fabric, embroidery, ribbons, lace and more.
This colorful clutch is handcrafted with upcycled huipils procured from artisans in the mountains of Guatemala. Each one is unique and crafted by artisans being paid fair wages. 

Purchase of this hand crafted, upcycled purse provides fair wage employment to the artisans of Manos Presiosas in Guatemala. Since 1990, the artisans have also had access to medical services, educational programs and microloans.
