ZERO WASTE Pouch! This darling travel pouch is perfect for keeping your things straight while you travel near and far. Its bold textile comes from repurposed traditional hand-woven huipiles from Chichicastenango. Instead of throwing out these leftover scraps from past projects, we preserve their integrity and give them a second life! This size is ideal for your passport, cosmetics, cash and cards. You won't know how you ever lived without it!
100% Cotton. Lined inside. Zipper Closure. Pom embellishment.
No two pouches are the same! Hiptipico prides itself on uniqueness and authenticity. Every Hiptipico product is 100% handmade and has the human touch of the weaver and maker in each stitch. This makes our products uniquely charming and distinct from factory-made accessories. No two are exactly same and imperfections are to be expected and appreciated.
This pouch is part of our Market Collection, which features textile treasures from Maya villages all around Guatemala, a country world famous for its intricate textiles and hand-embroidery. This collection is all about art appreciation and revival! When purchasing huipiles for crafting our artisanal bags, we make it our priority to select only textiles that could no longer be worn to truly give them a second life.
