Our Vintage Zunil Cosmetic Case is one-of-a-kind (1OAK) and placement of motif and color may vary. Made from Zunil Vintage Cortes (a corte is a skirt Maya women wear), full grain leather and solid hardware. Each design is different and no two will be alike, the weaving is a beautiful brocade foot-loomed by master weavers in the highlands of Guatemala.
Handcrafted by our leather artisans. Zipper closure. One inner pocket. 100% Cotton lining. Two leather tassel.Size: 9.5" Width x 6.5" Height x 3" depth.
Some of our accessories are made from repurposed Cortes (skirts Maya women wear) and Rebosos (baby wearing wrap) and deadstock fabrics. Cortes and Rebosos are made with a foot-loom, each design is typical of its region; each yard takes about 5-6 hours to weave! Our Bandanas, Scrunchies, Headbands and Denim Totes are made from dead stock (residual fabrics left over from major projects.) Instead of ending up in a landfill, these fabrics are repurposed for our accessories collection. Zero waste indeed!
Artisanal products differ from fast fashion products in that they are made in a traditional or non-mechanized way. Artisanal products are hand-crafted by skilled cobblers in small quantities with high quality and design in mind; using techniques that cannot be replicated by machines!
