Fair Trade Huipil Bags
If you notice, under the handle there's a red design that looks like the sun. This was the neck of the huipil. Each huipil takes 2-3 months to weave, are all one of a kind, and often tell a story about the weaver and where she is from. Often, weaving is the only skill these women posses as they don't know how to read or write and make very little money to support their families. We purchase these huipils directly from the weavers and then turn them into hobo bags, tote bags, overnighters, cross bodies, wristlets and more giving them a sustainable income.
And let's not forget the fringe. Perfect for all those festivals.
When you want to travel light. Wristlets.
|Notice how perfect each stitch is?|
Peace, Love and Textiles!
