the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination producing works to be appreciated primarily for its beauty and emotional power.
Our products are new, but their souls are old. We believe Ixchel Triangle bags are unique pieces of art, many of which are intricately hand woven or beaded traditionally on a backstrap loom. Our products encompass history, tradition, and culture of indigenous Mayan women and men, and have the strength to carry more than expected. Our focus is on the art, on preservation, on continuing education, on creativity, and on ethics. You are invited to join us in our mission!
Our Patzik 5 convertible backpack/tote is made with 100% hand woven upcycled huipils and genuine leather. Designed with flexibility and simplicity in mind, our limited convertible backpack collection offers two different wearing styles to suit your needs. This bag can either be packed up as a backpack, or dressed up as a tote. All woven fabrics used have had a previous life as a mayan blouse and are distinctively unique to the region and person who wove them. By carrying this bag you are prolonging the life and culture of Guatemala. Further, each bag is signed by the artisan who constructed it.
