WE ARE UNIQUE

Each shoulder bag is handmade by TRAMA's weavers using the traditional backstrap loom weaving technique of the Guatemalan highlands. Each product is the result of these women's craftsmanship combined with the expertise of Guatemalan leather artisans, so they are not only beautiful but also incredibly durable and resistant.

Being completely handmade, each of these bags has unique and inimitable features.

 

WE ARE SUSTAINABLE FOR PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Our eco-friendly bags are made with 100% organic materials and passion.

The process of both vegetable tanning and weaving is energy- and resource-saving, with minimum usage of water and electricity.

TRAMA's cooperative guarantees fair wages to its weavers and funds education programmes for the young members of several Guatemalan communities.

By purchasing TRAMA's products, you are contributing to:

  • preserving our weavers' and artisans' craftsmanship and cultural identity.
  • developing businesses founded on fair wages for workers and respect for the environment.
