Nena & Co (Guatemala) - One Of a Kind Artisan Bags

So Ali Hynek created this beautiful bag line in 2013 to celebrate her Guatemalan heritage. She creates bags out of one-of-a-kind vintage fabrics or out of newly woven artisan fabrics. Everything (the bags, the fabrics) are created in small batches with local artisans, through Fair Trade cooperatives as well as directly with local communities. The trick here: the items sell out immediately. And I mean immediately. Here’s what you have to do: Sign up for her newsletter (website below), and you get notified about the next bag drop online. Then sit by the computer at the moment of release and grab the bags while you can.
