Zippered Pouch w/ Woven Animals from Nahuala

$ 38.00

This bag is made from vintage textiles from the village of Nahuala in Guatemala. It is approximately 20 to 30 years old. It is made from a huipil (traditional Mayan woman's blouse) which was woven on a back-strap loom. Huipiles from Nahuala are characterized by their unique and whimsical animals, birds, and plants that are woven into the cloth. The huipil is the most important element of a woman's traditional dress as the design and style of each is specific to the village in which the woman lives.

Pouch is large with zippered closure. Lined. 9" x 12.5" Guatemala
