About the Maker
Achiote is a socially responsible Guatemalan company that follows Fair Trade Principles, born in 2015 with the interest of bringing development to communities in rural areas, add value in quality and design to Guatemalan ancestral craftsmanship and display Guatemala as the beautiful country it is to the world. The threads of wool and cotton are interweaved to tell the history of the ancient Mayan civilization. They transform these handwoven fabrics into unique products to offer people from all over the world a glimpse of what the culture represents, and provide the care that only a handmade process achieves. They work alongside more than 50 artisans in 7 different rural areas of Guatemala to develop the materials that they later use to manufacture all the products in their facilities. Achiote Bags are made of handwoven wool, full-grain leather, and cotton lining. The details have been carefully crafted, the wool has been treated to ensure durability, and only high-quality materials have been used. They combine functionality and beautiful design with innovation. Their goal is to create long term relationships built upon open and honest communication. Their commitment is to provide innovative, high-quality products, with a common goal of growth and prosperity to be shared.
