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. Both of the morral’s faces show the name of the former owner “Isidro Paiax Cumes” the date “1 de Enero de 1979” and his hometown, “Canton Chajuilya”. Also geometrical patterns are found in its design. All the colors are natural materials. The piece has a matching adjustable shoulder strap for the user’s comfort.
