Wearable art pieces like this Huipil Convertible Day Bag combine art, style and craftsmanship to create memorable statement pieces and are seen as a form of self-expression to both the weaver and wearer.  These wearable art pieces have been handcrafted using soft full grain leather and ancient Mayan weaving artistry. This includes ancient Mayan weaving designs, and Mayan textile symbols expressed through each handcrafted piece. All exterior and interior textiles have been loomed by hand on the backstrap loom by a skilled Artisan in Guatemala.
