Old lovely hand knitted bag or morral. This piece is woven with natural wool by Nahualá 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. Both of the morral’s faces show zoomorphic decorations, a bird with a lion and different geometrical patterns. 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.
