Our Jaspe collection is an attempt to emulate Guatemalan traditional weaving technic of "Jaspe" in cotton but with wool as new ways to live ancients techniques, with the classy and elegant combination of natural black wool, black cotton, white and a touch of gray threads interweave 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. Thank you for helping us keep this beautiful art form alive, and provide a sustainable form of income for our amazing Guatemalan artisans!

Made from hand-dyed and handwoven natural wool from sheep raised in the highlands, treated to ensure durability in our facilities in Guatemala City.

100% handmade in Guatemala from the spinning of the yarn to the confection of the bag.
