In Guatemala, the traditional indigenous dress includes an intricate hair wrap. Hair worn in this style is called a TOCOYAL. Tocoyales vary by region and the hair accessories can range from small, headband-like ribbons to large fabric headdresses.
This particular beauty was purchased directly from the village of San Antonio Palopó, Guatemala. This Tocoyal is a long, thin woven cinta, or ribbon. Very elaborate and colorful. The ladies in this village weave these gorgeous hair wraps by hand using a traditional pedal loom and then they adds embellishment like sparkly garland tassels or hand-beaded details.
Whether you want to style your hair in the traditional indigenous Maya way or you want to use it as a belt wrapped around a dress, or use it to tie a curtain in your home; there are endless options to use this stunning peace of art.
I love these bags. Not only do I use them for my kids and I when we travel I love to give them as gifts as well. 5 stars all the way! PS they hold up so well. We travel a lot and they still look great.
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!!
