Stand out in these beautiful handmade earrings inspired by colorful textiles and Maya traditions of Guatemala!
Make a statement in these stunning handmade BARRILETE earrings!
Inspired by Guatemalan Tradition: Enormous kites "BARRILETES", some more than 40 feet in diameter, are painted by hand throughout the year and flown over the graves of family members while flowers are strewn on the ground below. A mixture of Catholic and Mayan religious traditions, this unique celebration was created by the Maya to ward off bad spirits on All Saints Day, the day in which the deceased are allowed to visit the human world. Not wanting the bad spirits to return to earth, the kites are created to make noise to scare them off and also to carry messages to heaven for our loved ones.
I purchased 3 of these bags. This bag is the perfect reusable bag for going to a market. Fold it up and always have a stylist tote. I put one in my travel bag and the other stays in my car. My daughter snatched one too. I get many compliments.
The Tops that I have ordered for years are unique and beautifully made!! Each of the items are hand crafted with love!!
