Woven by hand on a backstrap loom, textured cotton in jewel colors becomes a trendy bracelet. Karina Mercedes Canova designs the wristband of brown leather and applies fabric from traditional Maya belts. "This design was inspired by the freedom to think, to be what we want to be, to choose what we like. The freedom to choose to be happy,"the designer says.

The weavings are created entirely by hand. The motifs can vary slightly, according to the artisan's inspiration, making each bracelet unique.

"As a designer, my main work is to make the world aware of the richness of Maya culture. Guatemala is the cradle of this unique civilization. When you choose my handbags, you are acquiring a piece of history because the Maya weaver combines creativity and tradition in every textile. This is why these handbags are unique. You are also fostering the continued use of the backstrap loom so that this art will be taught to future generations and not be lost."
