Texture. Pattern. Loads of color. This gorgeous laptop pouch is just the dose of nomadic spirit for that boho-girl-on-the-run look. Custom designed and every inch an artisanal legacy, it's made from vintage corte (traditional Guatemalan skirt). 

Handwoven using traditional backstrap weaving technique, each corte takes 4-6 weeks to weave and 1 day to reconstruct as a pouch. 

Crafted from a textile originally handwoven for and worn by an indigenous woman, this pouch is in vintage condition. Some minor imperfections are possible and are a nod to its cultural significance and history.

This pouch is handcrafted from a legacy vintage corte (traditional skirt worn by many Guatemalan women to this day), originally woven by the weavers of Zunil in the highlands of Guatemala. Handcrafted using a tie-and-dye method and woven on a foot loom, Zunil cortes (traditional ikat skirts worn by indigenous Maya women) are said to be the most tedious and difficult to weave out of all the cortes in Guatemala.

Breathing second life into scraps leftover from our poufs and cushions (so no heritage fabric goes to waste!), the fabric is converted into wearable accessories by Margarita and Vero, seamstress extraordinaires, in Xela, Guatemala.

As all of our items are handcrafted using all-natural fibers and some plant-based dyes, we’ve put together a few words of advice how to best care for them so they brighten up your home for years to come.

HUIPIL CUSHIONS, BATIK & IKAT CUSHIONS, NAGA CUSHIONS, STRAPS & YOGA BAGS  

Because these items are made with vintage textiles and may include leather accenting or hardware, we recommend that they are professionally dry cleaned when cleaning is required.

JASPE & JASPE BASURA

We recommend that cushions, rugs, throws and bed blankets from these collections are dry cleaned. This will ensure that colors retain their luster and fabric its shape. 

TOTO & CHILE VERDE

Gently wash cushions, bed blankets and throws from these collections by hand, in cool water. Wrap the tassels in rubber bands before washing, use mild soap and line dry to maintain the piece's original shape.

BORNN CANDLES

Due to its smooth, non-porous surface made of glass, enamel is bacteria inhibiting and easy to clean. Clean with lime juice and baking soda using the smooth side of the cleaning sponge or a soft brush. 

TENSIRA RANGE 

We recommend hand-washing these fabrics with mild soap. For tie & dye pieces, please wash them at 30°C and striped pieces at 40°C and lay flat to dry. Dry cleaning is recommended for kapok-filled cushion inserts.

PETRIFIED WOOD 

Clean with a natural or mild cleanser (avoid harsh chemicals) and a soft cloth.

RUGS

Vacuum regularly. Rotate every few months to even out wear, especially if the rug is located in a high traffic area. In case of a liquid spill, blot the spot using a white cloth to draw up the liquid; never rub a wet stain to prevent colors from bleeding. If further spot cleaning is required, entrust your rug to a professional dry cleaning service.

ART

While in storage, do not place objects on top of the artwork. Keep handling to a minimum when during the hanging process and hold your print only from the sides.  Fine art papers can scratch easily, so be very careful to avoid scraping anything across the surface of the print.

For cleaning we recommend using a clean, white, dry, soft lint-free cloth to gently wipe off dust and/or dirt. Use a white non-colored cloth will allow you to see when dust has been collected.

It is recommended that you never display giclee prints in direct sunlight and avoid high temperatures and humidity as it can cause yellowing.
