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. Both of the morral’s faces show geometrical patterns in its design and the name of the towns inside the state of “El Quiche”, Joyabaj and Zacualpa. 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.
