Conceived after visiting Chiman indigenous communities living in the Amazon region of Bolivia, Chiman bags are a new addition to our growing portfolio.
Led by Yanawara, this project aims to :

- Preserve the skills, know-how, and passion they have to weave unique products from natural fibers using an ancient technique, passed down from generation to generation.
