As the Latins once said, "nomen omen".
Our weavers' experienced hands met the artistry of leather-making craftswomen based in Quetzaltenango to create these unique accessories, whose refined and charming personality will give a chic touch to your traveling set.
Their breath-taking valuable quality comes from the two processes of ancient Mayan weaving and Guatemalan traditional vegetable tanning, which intertwine to gift each beauty bag bright and intense colors, intricate patterns, a fascinating aroma and extreme durability.
All these features are enhanced by the elegant and modern design developed by our young generation of talented artisans, whose fresh ideas and creative genius are tracing the future of the world-appreciated Guatemalan textiles.
