Our Jaspe collection shows our appreciation for the Guatemalan traditional cotton weaving technic of "Jaspe" now with wool; showing new ways to bring life to traditional techniques, with the classy and elegant combination of natural black wool, black cotton, white and gray threads interweaved within each other.
Each weave is created by the talented hands of artisans from Momostenango, a small rural area in the mountains that preserves the ancient technique of “pepenado” in a pedal loom. The leatherwork is commissioned to a workshop run by women in San Pedro Sacatepequez, where craftsmanship is essential to the high-end quality of your bag.
Our purpose is to keep this beautiful art form alive, and provide a sustainable income for our amazing Guatemalan artisans!
