Old lovely hand knitted bag or morral. This piece is woven with natural wool by men while they are shepherding. This style of bag is characteristic from the area of the Guatemala Highlands and only men use it. Because of the materials is a very resistant piece. One of the morral’s face shows geometrical decorations and a roaring lion and the beautiful Quetzal bird. The other side of the bag shows a horse and birds. All the colors are natural materials. The piece has a matching adjustable shoulder strap for the user’s comfort. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping.
