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 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.
