They were the height of fashion of that era. Sleek and sharp, the clutch bags were reflective of the women of the time.

As one of our most popular products, this is a must have for your favorite outfit. Comalapa is a town just north west of the capital city of Guatemala, and was the scene of epic battles between the Mayan indigenous people and the colonial Spanish in the 16th century. Known as the “Florence of Guatemala”, its community bears an attitude that allows weavers the freedom of expression to make each textile a unique personal work of art, and the town is also well known for its primitive, naïf paintings. Some of the most complex and beautiful textile designs come from this region, and this Comalapa Clutch Bag is no exception. Our canvas comes from the highly respected supplier Lonas Segovia, the oldest canvas maker in Guatemala. The seams are sewn using bonded nylon thread with a burned and melted finish offering no loose ends during your travel.
