These versatile barrel bags are your ultimate take anywhere zipper bag. Sturdy and offered in two sizes, they’re great for storing makeup, school supplies, tech cords for travel and so much more. Each bag is handmade with recycled textiles by artisans in Guatemala with careful attention to detail. Every piece features traditional, hand-embroidered patterns representing locations all over the country.
Our barrel bags have been created by using different parts of a repurposed, hand-embroidered huipil for each color grouping. That means you’ll select the color family you’d like and the specific embroidery pattern will be a surprise that awaits you when your package arrives!
Not only does this allow the entirety of an artisan’s huipil to be used for our barrel bags, we also hope that it will provide you a greater connection to the vibrant Guatemalan culture by allowing you to experience the same surprise and excitement we feel when stumbling upon unexpected treasures in our artisans stalls.
