On one of our wonderful research trips through Mexico in 2017 we came to San Cristobal. The creativity that breathes through this magical town gave us the idea to design a new style of strap for your Tea & Tequila bag or any old bags in need of some spicing up!
We meet with a small community of indigenous women up in the mountains outside the town to discuss the possibility of working together to create bag straps from a style of weaving we had been admiring in the markets. It turned out that their ancestors had been creating this kind of weave to create belts and many years before that to carry firewood. It has been a great honour to work with this incredibly talented community ever since we met.
We are so excited to see that the trend has since spread and our handwoven bag straps have reached from Mexico City to London, New York and as far as Australia. We pride ourselves on being the original handwoven bag strap curators. And our success has benefited all the way through to the people who actually make these beautiful pieces.
It is very important to us that the artisans behind the weaving are celebrated and honoured for their craft and handiwork. We will continue to work with and support this community for as long as our woven straps are created.
We find the wide surface area and softness of the weave is so comfortable on your shoulder which really makes a difference when carrying around your bag all day.
Many of our friends have got very creative with how they wear their woven straps, we have seen phone straps, camera straps and even dog leads!
Your strap will last you a long long time and fit many different bags so be ready to welcome a new friend for life!
