From our travels around the world, we've found that the dying art of weaving is fading into history. Our mission at Nena & Co is to help preserve and revive interest in this unique and beautiful traditional practice. We celebrate the art of craftsmanship and strive to encourage and motivate young weavers, and all artisans, to carry on the traditions of their ancestors. We also want the Heritage & Society Collection to be an outlet for our weaver's creativity. We believe that by sustaining family traditions we deepen our relationship with and understanding of our heritage, which will ensure that these cultures do not fadeaway, but stay as vibrant as the colors displayed in our bags.
Our Artisan Patch Collection consists of products constructed using freshly made materials, custom created on a small-batch scale, ensuring attention to detail and quality of the highest standard. Commissioning the creation of these patches is vital to the Guatemalan people, as it creates a sustainable form of income for our artisans. Thank you for helping us keep this beautiful art form alive, and supporting the wellbeing of our beloved Guatemalan artisans!
APPLICATION & CARE
Our One Of A Kind Collection consists of products constructed using curated vintage fabrics purchased from loyal Guatemalan market vendors. All of the fabrics seen in the One Of A Kind Collection have lived a full life before being incorporated into your bag! These vintage fabrics were woven from the memory by a Guatemalan artisan up to 10 years ago; each pattern distinctive of the region where the artisan resides. Truly and completely one-of-a-kind, these bags are a masterpiece!
