Story Behind the Art:
Made by cooperative that lives in the Guatemala highlands. The cooperative has a design team of five that create their high style designs and a group of 20 highly skilled artisans that reproduce the bags. Each bag is unique due the fact that each huipil is unique. The group still insists on making each bag by hand instead of using machines in order to provide more employment opportunities to the people of the town.
