Cotton – San Juan
We work with a specific women’s’ cooperative in San Juan La Laguna (Lake Atitlan, Guatemala) who have been working together since 1985??? With the objective of providing empowerment to women and economic and educational opportunities for their children. This is Dina whose designs we absolutely love for our serum bags, kit bags and the inner lining of our luxury boxy pouches.
We love that the cotton is grown organically on the volcano slopes and that from this they not only weave the fabric, but pull it into thread and dye it with herbs, vegetables, tree bark and spices as well.
The fabric is made with love and pride and it shows in every detail.
