This cute clutch has been handcrafted in Guatemala from recycled huipils, the traditional blouse worn by Mayan women in Guatemala. To the knowledgable observer, a huipil (wee-peel) identifies a woman's village, social and marital status, religious background, wealth, and individual personality. A well-woven huipil can last 20 to 30 years before it's sold at market and starts a second life as a rag, quilt or handbag.
