Sam & Nala Bandana
These casual bandanas begin their journey as new fabric that was hand woven by members of a women’s cooperative in the highlands of Guatemala. We work with the artisan weavers to bring their art and imagery to the fabrics we use. We then take these custom fabrics to a small family-run sewing shop outside Chichicastenango, Guatemala to transform them into wearable fun for your pup. By setting their own wages and prices, weavers and sewers have the opportunity to express their creativity while carrying on the tradition of weaving and earning a fair wage.
We work with local buyers familiar with community markets to hand-select classic heirloom handwoven fabrics. We then take these fabrics to a small family-run sewing shop outside Chichicastenango, Guatemala to transform them into wearable fun for your pup. These durable weavings are enjoying a second life, thanks to the artistry of women, whose efforts and contributions are not forgotten.
