Description
Inspire by the traditional huipil blouses worn by Guatemalan women, Luisa Villavicencio designs this elegant shoulder bag. The all-cotton bag is woven on a traditional backstrap loom with black threads against a natural background. The diamond motif is called rupan, and it symbolizes the sacred dishes that were used in Mayan ceremonies as offerings to the gods. Trimmed in supple brown leather, the fully-lined bag features two interior pockets to keep small items secure. A jaunty cotton tassel completes the design.

    A wonderful bag!!

    So glad I bought this bag. Perfect for everyday usage. The phone pocket could be a bit longer and down from the zipper. Will Open the bottom seam to let it slide down.

    Beautiful design, well made, but quite stiff and falls off my shoulder. Inside pockets not big enough for a phone.

    very attractive handbag

    Nice quality bag. Good size. Inner pockets should be lower down to have clearance for new, larger mobile phones. Otherwise, very happy with style and size. Could always use a larger zip pocket too.
