This style of bag is characteristic from the area of the Guatemalan Highlands and only men use it. Because of the materials is a very resistant piece. One of the morral’s faces show a gorgeous big horse surrounded by two Quetzal Birds and geometrical figures. The other side has an eagle with the inscription GUATEMALA. The piece has a matching adjustable shoulder strap for the user’s comfort. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping.
