Mayan Weave Daypack by Y'abal Guatemala

From the moment we walked into Y'abal's doors, located in the charming city of Xela (pronounced Shay-La), we fell deeply in love with the beauty and quality of their goods. We knew we had to bring these enchanting bags to PennyLark.

Sturdy, minimalist, and versatile, this daypack is sustainably crafted with handwoven fabric by artisans in the highlands of Guatemala. Made from thick cotton fabric, it's made to last. The cotton has been hand dyed with plants, insects, and ash. 

When you buy a Y'abal hand-woven product you not only contribute directly to the economic self-sufficiency of the women Y'abal works with, but you are also supporting the fair trade workshops and social programs implemented in their communities! With your purchase you are increasing the opportunities and quality of life for women in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. 

Details
Large outside zip pocket
Inner drawstring closure and outer flap magnetic snap closure
Measures approx 16" x 12.5" x 5"
Straps are 20" long

STORY

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD

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!
