lossobrantes 's Thoughts:

During the summer of 2010, Matthew and I traveled Guatemala and Honduras. Our reasons for visiting Latin America were rooted in familial and childhood experiences. My mother’s family is Honduran, and Matthew lived in Guatemala for six months following the civil war that ended in the late 1990s. While Latin America is known for textiles, Guatemala boasts some of the most impressive artisan wares. I purchased this backpack in San Pedro, a small town bordering Lago de Atitlán. The material is handwoven by local women, and the leather is imported from master artisans in surrounding villages. The result is this beautiful backpack, one of my most cherished possessions from my travels.
