“I created Heritage & Society years ago, because traditions are so important to me in my own family. It is my intention to encourage young artists to value and carry on the traditions taught and practiced by their family. I'm so excited to introduce the H&S Collection and what we have in store for you the rest of the year.”
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 and understanding of our heritage, which will ensure that these cultures do not fade away, but stay as vibrant as the colors displayed in our bags.
It is our intention to create a community that finds beauty in the details of artisan work and has an appreciation of cultures and desire to enable newer generations to embrace the old and the new traditions of their heritage.
