We are so honored to announce our collaboration with Trama Textiles, a fair trade collective of 400 indigenous Mayan women who weave in the Guatemalan Highlands. We had a chance to go hang out recently with the collective, and we had an amazing trip. We learned so much, and we are so excited to be working with these inspirational ladies on our new line!
Did we mention that the fibers in these bags are hand-dyed?
We have already purchased the textiles included in these pieces, and on top of this 10% OF YOUR PURCHASE GOES BACK TO THESE WOMEN. No catch. When you buy, you are helping to purchase basic materials for their business, along with larger items like stoves for hand dying fabrics, computers to help sell without a middle man, and educational tools for the women in the collective and their families. We believe that enabling female run businesses in struggling economies is a great way to help increase quality of life.
Plus, these weavings are just gorgeous. They look so great!

What we love about this bag:
-it is a show stopper! The color combo is on point -eco-tanned leather is weather resistant, and textiles outside and in are also water resistant! -looks SO GOOD with jeans or a sundress -looks better as it ages, so you will have this style for years to come
