ONE OF A KIND
This one of a kind, stunning, handmade from start-to-finish, sustainable leather travel bag is the perfect size for packing all you need for your long weekend get-aways, summer beach trips, yoga classes, or even just running errands, while you travel near and far. It would even make a pretty spectacular baby bag! This 'large' size is ideal for packing all your zero-waste accessories, sets of clothes, books, cosmetic bag, change of clothes, and other must have items while on on a trip, but still an easy size to carry. Plus it has multiple, adjustable straps, to wear as a luggage back, backpack, side bag, etc. A variety of pockets inside and out mean you can organize to your heart's content, and the two roomy side pockets are perfect for stashing your reusable water bottles as you go!
Made from textile treasures from Maya villages all around Guatemala, a country world famous for its intricate textiles and hand-embroidery, this bag is handmade magic. Its bold textile print comes from re-purposed traditional hand-woven huipiles, the indigenous clothes of local Maya women. Instead of throwing out these beautiful clothes, our artisan supplier gives them a second life as a one-of-a-kind hand bag!
The supplier consciously sources their leather from providers that have sustainable practices and view leather as a byproduct of the meat industry, preventing future waste, and utilizing all parts of the animal.
Extremely durable, structured body, imported hardware and heavy-weight construction. This bag will last you a lifetime.
