Embroidered Bird Bag by La Puerta Abierta

This roomy tote draws the eye to an up-cycled traditional Guatemalan textile with rich indigo colors and a charming hand embroidered bird. It was made by the mothers of children attending La Puerta Abierta school in Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala and all sales support the non-profit school, library, and community center's work.

Measures approx 20" x 16"

PennyLark Finery visited this school in Guatemala with our friends, Resilient Threads. We were captivated by the incredible birds of this region, so we could see why birds are a common subject of the handmade goods we discovered. We hope this bag is as joyful to you as it is to us!
Gracias, Maltiox, Thank you.  

May this shop grow strong, and provide for many women.

Why Shop small

Sending gifts from PennyLark means you are supporting women owned, small business with values. Search gifts creatively made without the labor and environmental exploitation of mass produced overseas goods. We run our business on love of community, and wrap every package like a gift.



I recently discovered this amazing website and ordered necklaces for my daughters. I received them in 2 days! Not only did they arrive quickly, they were carefully packed and beautifully wrapped. I wanted to peek so bad but resisted because I wouldn’t be able to duplicate the wrapping. This website empowers, features and recognizes women artists and honors their work.
They cared so much they asked for feedback and responded when I provided it. This will definitely be one of my go to sites for gift giving.

We all need that special thing for our ourselves/lover/sister/friend.

The sweet thing is that the research is done on where to intentionally drop our cash! I simply love the products, stories behind who creates the products and the fact that I can depend on the best curated collections.

This all makes Pennylark Finery my go-to place - and why I’m getting ready to put order number four out the door. Thank you, PennyLark Finery!
