In February 2019 we began working with an incredibly talented community of women in Campeche who fled Guatemala during the civil war.
They brought with them weaving skills using a back-strap loom which has been passed down to them through generations. They have now formed a working community ensuring consistent jobs for their highly-coloured hand-dyed cotton fabrics.
We designed The Artesana Bag to incorporate their beautiful thick coloured fabrics and share them across the world.
It is a huge honour to work with all these women and we hope to improve their lives and sustain their craft for many generations to come.
