De Colores Artisan Story
Guatemala

Chichicastenango, Guatemala, has become one of the most important heritage centers in Guatemala during the past 10 years, due to its predominant indigenous Maya Quiche population and their traditional textile products. Yet, despite increased tourism and a renewed interest in traditional Mayan crafts, work opportunities remain few for the indigenous population, many of whom are uneducated and otherwise unemployable.

De Colores Artisan - Sewing a SmileEnter De Colores Art, a local business that levels the playing field for villagers by offering free training to anyone who demonstrates the initiative to learn a trade. The company employs 30 women and 18 men to knit and embroider textile products, with the option of working at home using materials provided by the company. De Colores recognizes the culture of its Mayan employees, and as such allows flexible hours and gives time off for sowing and harvest days.

Our Trapezoid-Shaped Rococo Handbag is made from recycled Huipils (pronounced Wee-peel), the Spanish term for the traditional blouse worn by Mayan women in Guatemala. Huipils are the most significant part of a Mayan woman's costume, and to the knowledgeable observer it identifies a woman's village, social and marital status, religious background, wealth, and individual personality.

  • Measures 17" wide (at bottom) x 12" high
  • Lined with zipped interior pocket
  • Snap closure
  • Available in Purple and Brown (reverse side matches handle)

Since these items are created from many different blouses, designs and styles will vary. Handmade in Guatemala and fair trade imported.
