Upcycled Handbag - Teteoinnan

$46.00

Our weavers' creative vision always provides you with alternative solutions to modern fast fashion and standardisation.
Their new creations embody the willingness to live life at a slower pace so as to savor each moment fully and gratefully
They want to be reminders of the joy and peace that nature and people can gift us if we spend time connecting with them.


Purple, in its most intense shade, has been chosen to accompany you along this path, being in the Mayan culture the color of spiritual healing and regeneration.
Vivid green, orange, red and yellow will provide support and dynamism, echoing a bountiful harvest of maize (the symbol of a rich life) and the warm light of the golden sun (the shining beacon of hope in life's darkest times).


These precious bags are committed to preserving the natural richness of Guatemala by relying only on recycled pieces of fabric that, in their previous life, composed beautiful and polychrome dresses.
Their handles are also made of hand-carved wood to provide you with all the robustness and resilience of the Guatemalan forests.

 

Dare to be kind!

Dare to be conscious!

Dare to embrace a more sustainable and full life!

WE ARE UNIQUE

Each handbag 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.
