Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

"As a designer, my main work is to make the world aware of the richness of Maya culture. Guatemala is the cradle of this unique civilization. When you choose my handbags, you are acquiring a piece of history because the Maya weaver combines creativity and tradition in every textile. This is why these handbags are unique. You are also fostering the continued use of the backstrap loom so that this art will be taught to future generations and not be lost."

"Simply amazing "

This is so unique and beautiful, I can't say enough. I love the colors, the design, the wood beads...was concerned it might feel too clunky, but it feels very comfortable. It really feels like a special piece, and so well-priced. I'm going to buy a few of them for my girlfriends as gifts I love the so much. ? thank you!
