When you need to keep itty-bitty things safe and looking good! Intertwined's huipil itty-bitty clutch is an artisan bag made from pieces of a second-hand huipil, a traditional handwoven blouse worn by Mayan women. Cuero Malec, a Guatemalan leather shop, recycles these huipiles by transforming them into gorgeous, durable artisan bags, using every last piece of the huipil to make our itty-bitty-clutches!

Handmade Vintage

This product is made with handmade, upcycled fabric. We believe the minor imperfections associated with vintage fabric are part of the charm and uniqueness of the item. We do our best to take photos that accurately represent the true colors and worn nature of the handwoven fabric, but colors vary across monitors, and photos can’t highlight all aspects of a product.
