Upcycled Beauty Bag - Quetzal Huipil

$37.00

While it is said that the world spins around shallow appearances and promises, here in TRAMA breath-taking charm is interwoven with powerful symbols of cultural resilience and respect for nature.
Each of these precious handbags embodies our weavers' commitment to preserving their ancestral Mayan heritage while developing a truly sustainable and fair activity for themselves and their communities.
Their creations stand for these values, going against the fast-paced model of fashion that has gravely contributed to the pollution of our world, environment and people.


We go along a different path, and one of our flagship symbols is the tiny yet iridescent Quetzal, worshipped as the embodiment of our world's goodness and light, which is emanated by its long and dazzling tail feathers.


We want to celebrate all the efforts and achievements that TRAMA has carried out so far by delivering you 100% upcycled accessories. Their refined huipil fabrics showcase luminous Quetzal birds that will be the perfect companions of your daily routine and adventurous travels.


Check them out and let the warm light of the "tiny god of the air" embrace you!

WE ARE UNIQUE

Each beauty 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, so they are not only beautiful but also incredibly durable and resistant.


WE ARE SUSTAINABLE FOR PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT

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

The whole process of production 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' craftsmanship and cultural identity.
  • developing businesses founded on fair wages for workers and respect for the environment.
