Working for you is this bright rubi red cosmetic bag designed with recycled Huipil from the town of Tac Tic, nestled high in the Alta Verapaz region. The woven zigzag serpent design is crafted in a functional cosmetic bag that moves everywhere to carry your everyday essentials! 

*The story:

The woven zigzag form is designed to imitate the movement of this particular reptile. The colors tell more; the red color represents the ancestor's blood shed of the past; the green is to reflect Mother Nature that surrounds us all; the blue is reflecting dawn; and the purple is for Lent and Easter. This ancient design have different different interpretations from town to town.
