Plus your purchase helps others! The backpack is made from repurposed skirts(cortes) worn by the indigenous women in Guatemala. It is washable, fully lined and the women who make them earn a fair wage which helps them feed their children and keep them in school.

And it is not just for kids. Others can find many uses for several of these bags. Let us know how you would use them.
Each corte is a little different so the designs vary in the bags, but all contain the ikat design typical of the Guatemalan weaving.
