In the highlands of Guatemala, indigenous women of Mayan lineage weave a traditional blouse called a huipil, a woven masterpiece that mixes the design influence of their village with their own personality and creativity.  The skill necessary to hand weave this elaborate living tapestry has been passed down, generation after generation, and you can feel the weaving history of the Mayan people in these garments when you see and touch them.  Bonita Pina works with women in Guatemala to upcycle vintage huipils into the centerpiece for one-of-a-kind leather handbags – every single huipil is totally unique to the artist weaving it, so no two handbag designs are exactly alike!
