""Every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want." - Anne Lappe
The process of making a handbag or any of our products starts by selecting the best materials.
Sometimes including vintage fabrics, organic cotton and the best quality leather. We decided to make every piece unique and a piece of art that preserves and promote artisan tradition creating job opportunities and reflecting the personality and the details from every artisan that works in our factory.
Purchasing ethically means purchasing higher quality items, but sometimes those items come at a higher cost. While it might be hard to justify spending your money on fewer items than you could get at a fast fashion retailer, the global cost is much greater when purchasing cheap clothing. It’s also important to consider that the cost-per-wear is often greater with ethical clothing because of its high quality.
Don’t lose hope. Sometimes it’s hard to feel like you’re making any impact, especially when the fast fashion industry is as monstrous as it is. History shows the great power of the educated consumer .
By purchasing our products you are supporting Native Artisans from Guatemala and promoting the Ethical fashion culture.
