Full Grain Leather, Genuine Mayan Textile


Over time and with use, the leather will assume a unique patina. If desired, condition with mineral oil or beeswax leather conditioner.


This leather piece with tipico mayan accents is meant to be passed on to future generations.

Take a piece of Guatemalan history and tradition wherever you go with this beautiful, elaborate Mayan Key Chain. Hang your keys with style and pride, and don't forget to be ready to tell people who compliment your key chain the story of Mayan textiles, a material that became the lifestream of Guatemala. Durable in design and available in various colors, this makes a fantastic, lifelong gift.

The Mayan textiles represent the artistic and religious expressions through clothing and other textile arts of the Maya people in Mexico and Central America. This ancient art derives from the practice of spinning loose cotton fibers using spindles, dyed using natural colors extracted from colorful plants and flowers. When dry, the cotton is then woven into intricate, beautiful designs. Many designs used in clothing represent the indigenous populations' communities, giving them a sense of identity and a feeling of home. The Mayan textiles that we use originate in Pastores, Guatemala, lovingly handcrafted by the local men and women of the town.

The leather we use, originating from our well established supplier Compiel, is nothing but Full Grain Leather, and if you don't know what that is, then make sure you're sitting comfortably. There are 4 types of leather, and they differ in quality. You have Full Grain Leather, Top Grain Leather, Genuine Leather and Bonded Leather.

We'll start with Bonded Leather. It's more of an insult to call Bonded Leather a leather. It's basically lots of different parts of leather glued and pressed together to make one piece. It's cheap, not at all durable and it will fall apart within weeks. In short, it's no good and we are completely against it.

Genuine Leather is in third place in the running, and is the layer of the hide that remains after the top is taken off for the better quality leathers. This surface can often be given a makeover with a finish, sometimes a spray paint that can give it the look of a better quality. Not something that happens in our house. Don't settle for this, you can do better.

Top Grain Leather is the second highest grade that you'll find. A leather taken from the top layer of the hide that is treated, sanded and refined. It's a good quality leather, but not good enough for Hide and Drink. You can still do better, though, go one more step higher.

Full Grain Leather is the best you can get when it comes to leather, there's no competition here, and Hide and Drink is its biggest fan. Full Grain Leather comes from the top layer of the hide, and has all of the grain, hence its name. It's the best leather than you can buy, and the only leather that we use. You can stop looking now, you've found the cream of the crop.

The tanning process is something that we take pride in. Our rustic leather is created through removing the hair, extracting the moisture, taking out the oils and, of course, the natural preservatives. The leather is placed in a large container filled with new oils, coloring and preservatives, and there it takes on its new color and thus its new personality. The finishing process consists of pressing the leather with heated plates, hung up to dry and sprayed and finished with a sealer. Finally it is pressed once more and then ready for its transformation, in which it is carefully handcrafted by the diligent locals of Pastores, Guatemala, where our workshop is located.

Very unique and durable. Feels classy. Love em. The pink is my favorite but they are all great, soft and fit well.


I love my key chain and it's totally worth it!

Very nice but small

The keychain is much smaller than I anticipated -- the length includes the key ring. But it's a very cool, well built little key chain.

Ernesto Lopez Jr
Wonderful Keychain

I love this keychain. I feel that it is small enough to not be overbearing, but distinct enough to stand out a bit. The keychain is made well and appears to be extremely durable. I will be putting my friends on to the site.

Elliott Reese
Great addition to the key-chain!

This is definitely an authentic looking and feeling hand-made item. I needed something to "tie" the key-chain together, and this is just small yet efficient enough to do the trick. Great purchase!
