This beautiful hand embroidered bag was originally a part of a Mayan woman’s traditional blouse known as a huipil (wepeel). The fabric used for huipils are woven on back-strap looms and then embroidered. The colors, weaves, and design represent her personality and the village she is from. Each huipil is a work of art and can take months to complete. Once a woman grows tired of her huipil she may trade it or sell it for extra income. Precious Hands pays women fairly for their huipils and repurposes them to create new products thus creating more jobs.
