our story

Not your typical bag.
At Maya Moda we create bags that tell a story. Starting decades ago, rooted in Maya traditions and ending up on your arm, in any place in the world.

Who we are
Maya Moda is an ethical bag collection made by the indigenous community of Guatemala. All bags are handmade with back-strap loom. The designs and patterns on each bag are part of ancient Maya traditions. By buying our bags you support female artisans in rural areas.
Fair Trade
We work together with Maya Traditions Foundation, member of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO).

About the makers
We work together with women cooperatives in rural areas of Guatemala. Learn more about the cooperatives:
