Nena & Co. is thrilled to be working with the bead artisans of Kenya to create our exclusive line of bag straps and key fobs. The intricate beadwork for our Kenya Collection is handmade by women from several communities across Kenya. This collection features recycled brass end clasps and our Womanhood icon hardware, all made by hand!


Similar to our Guatemalan artisans, many of our bead workers in Kenya are mothers and grandmothers, and have additional duties such as household chores and caring for livestock. The income they receive from beading helps them live comfortable lives, and gives them the opportunity to send their children to school. These women value education, and are passionate about conserving the wildlife around them. They often bead together, developing lasting friendships and receiving the social interaction so many of us long for. These women are thankful for the opportunity they have to use their skills to create a better life for their family and contribute to their community.

We make every effort to provide our customers with the best-handcrafted and high-quality bags. Please note that all our processes to make the bags are done by hand, from curing, cutting, and treating the leather to using up-cycled huipils. Our bags have natural characteristics and qualities that should not be considered as flaws or as damage because they do not interfere with the functionality of the bag. We up-cycle vintage Maya clothing to make beautiful one-of-a-kind products. Many times you will find snags in the pattern. This is normal. Should your patterned huipil snag you can snip the loose threads with scissors. Do not pull them.
Some people also like to use Scotchgard Brand Protector on the fabric portion of their bag.
Should you choose to, you may use a leather conditioner but many of our customers prefer to let the natural oils of their skin wear on the leather to get that buttery soft feel to them, we advise doing a test spot on the leather before applying a conditioner or treatment to the entire bag. You can read our tutorial on how to use the leather care treatment if you choose to go this route.
After 60 days from the time you've received your bag, Nena & Co. will no longer assume responsibility for repairs of your product. However, we are more than happy to assist with recommendations on where you can have your bag repaired. We use our local shoe cobbler or specialty bag shops for any repairs or customization we have done to Nena bags. 
Nena & Co. is not responsible for damages that may occur during care for merchandise; including but not limited to conditioning washing, drying and/or dry cleaning.

Through collaborating with Nena & Co., we are able to give this time honored artistry a platform, as we offer a glimpse into their beautiful process, community, and history. We recognize the importance of high quality craftsmanship and skill, as well as the livelihood of the talented men and women who create these pieces.Artisans who work in collaboration with Nena & Co.earn a fair wage, and are provided with healthcare and scholarships.

These benefits help them thrive, and encourage them to further progress in their own lives.
