Little Luxuries

We showcase a variety of high quality Guatemalan fabrics in this special line of purses. Each of these are custom made for us by Mayan artisans.


Fabrics

The special Guatemalan fabrics include:

  • Panal - fabric from the Comalopa region of Guatemala made by Mayan Indians. This durable fabric displays a unique honeycomb textured pattern which offers a wonderful variety of colorful designs.
  • Floracita - fabric from the Comalopa region of Guatemala made by Mayan Indians. Itís a floral pattern in a wonderful array of colors.
  • Huipil - The embroidered huipils which make up these purses are from the rich weaving tradition of the Mayan Indians of Guatemala. The huipil is the traditional woman's vestment that identifies her social and marital status as well as her religious beliefs, wealth and authority by reading the encoded woven symbols and figures embroidered in each. Old huipils are cleaned, dyed.
  • Velvet with Embroidery Insets - Luxurious jewel tone velvets make a frame for various embroidered tapestry motifs such as fruit and flowers.
