Campeche, Yucatan, Mexico
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.
Here is a selection of images of the amazing women who created The Artesana Bag:
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.
And finally, here are some photographs of The Artesana Bags created in our collaboration:
