My name is Marianela and together with a talented community of women in Guatemala we create products for travelers who love and appreciate handmade products.
Through embroidery and ancestral techniques, we inspire a change of consciousness for handmade and creative products. We create to inspire the imagination. Our mission is to enhance the artisanal work of communities of women around the world by combining techniques and genres from Argentina and Guatemala to recover the essence and tradition of the female lineages of Latin America.
We work directly with a talented cooperative of artisans in rural Guatemala where they handcraft embroidered straps for cameras, sling bags, laptop cases & backpacks. Each strap is 100% handmade (no machine!) and is thoughtfully handcrafted using high-quality materials.
We finish the process in Argentina where quality vegetable tanned leather is being added! Our Argentinian premium quality leather is tanned without the use of harmful chemicals in order to minimize environmental impact. It’s made in Argentina since 1956, backed by the Good Argentine Design seal, a recognition of excellence in national design and production.

🌸 Vintage Collection
We are committed to recycling and responsible consumption and zero waste, that’s why we have designed this beautiful “Pre-loved Vintage” Straps Collection. These straps (fajas) were previously worn by indigenous women communities, are in mint condition and have deep-rooted cultural meaning.
🌸 Illustration Collection
We collaborate with artists from around the world and create unique capsules with illustrators who design their own strap and then the embroiderers turn them into straps. So far we have 2 collaborations:
