How we make them
Some of our accessories are made from repurposed Cortes (skirts Maya women wear) and Rebosos (baby wearing wrap) and deadstock fabrics. Cortes and Rebosos are made with a foot-loom, each design is typical of its region; each yard takes about 5-6 hours to weave! Our Bandanas, Scrunchies, Headbands and Denim Totes are made from dead stock (residual fabrics left over from major projects.) Instead of ending up in a landfill, these fabrics are repurposed for our accessories collection. Zero waste indeed!
Handmade by Artisans
Artisanal products differ from fast fashion products in that they are made in a traditional or non-mechanized way. Artisanal products are hand-crafted by skilled cobblers in small quantities with high quality and design in mind; using techniques that cannot be replicated by machines!
