This darling pouch is perfect for keeping your things straight and organized while you travel near and far.
This beautiful hand embroidered travel pouch or cosmetic bag was originally a part of a Mayan woman’s traditional blouse known as a Huipil (wepeel). The fabric used for huipils are woven on back-strap looms and then embroidered. The colors, weaves, and design represent her personality and the village she is from. Each huipil is a work of art and can take months to complete. Once a woman grows tired of her huipil she may trade it or sell it for extra income.
