Why Antigua Guatemala Bags are so Special

Antigua Original Carryalls & Convertible Guatemalan Bags Australia
 
Our Original Antigua Guatemalan Bags are simply magnificent. These bags are all one-of-a-kind. Each bag is made by skilled artisans using vintage, upcycled Guatemalan huipils. Huipils are the traditional blouses worn by the indigenous women of Guatemala. These blouses are woven by hand and take months to create. The designs have special meaning and represent many things including area where the weaver resides to religious meanings. Although each huipil varies and all hold their own meaning, the one commonality -they all take incredible skill to create. These ladies are artists and their textiles are art. And each huipil that Sunday Isle uses is selected by us, for you. We ensure that each is beautiful and the colours are vibrant. Our Guatemala bag collection takes these vintage huipils and gives them new life as bags. Coupled with leather and fine design, our Antigua Guatemala bags will last a lifetime...or pretty close. I have had one for over 15 years!
