WOME, a bag collection handcrafted in Guatemala
The ancient Mayan art of back-strap weaving is one of the biggest sources of income for indigenous communities in Guatemala. Looking to preserve that tradition, but also to lower the time of production and then being able to increase the artisan’s salaries, we avoided using embroidery by designing simple patterns with vertical lines. We also wanted to represent the spirit of this beautiful country throughout the color, creating four different prints for three different bag designs.
Simple. Just a single color to combine it with all your possible outfits.
Two different colors, two different ways. To hesitant people.
Blue colors and shades. Degraded colors are always an option.
Full color design. Vivid colors always make you feel happy.
