Beautiful, traditional backstrap loom weaving is given new life in this unique cuff bracelet. Each bracelet is a piece of a handwoven huipil blouse that was once worn by a Mayan woman from the Guatemalan highlands. Pieces of these treasured textiles are used to make modern bohemian cuffs. Each bracelet is made by women at Manos Preciosas.
