The perfect little pouch to organize and brighten up your day! Handwoven ikat, screenprinted with our signature pink girl, topped off with a hot pink tassel, zipper and lining. We named it after Maria, 15, on the right in the photo (with her friend Janette, 16), daughter of a textile vendor in Panajachel, who is working her way through secondary school and wants to be a teacher.
Material: cotton ikat and lining, acrylic tassel and metal zipper

Maribel Pocón, seen finishing the pouch in the last photo, is from the town of San Antonio Aguas Calientes, near Antigua, in Guatemala. She has daughter and two sons aged 14, 7 and 3. She has been running the workshop on her own for the past year while her husband is in prison awaiting a hearing on a 15-year old charge that he says is fraudulent.
