Charles Acquah

Agripina

Nice to meet you, I’m Agripina! We make textiles with Ethnotek using a process called ‘jaspe’. The raw warp yarn is tied and dyed in sections, then spooled onto bobbins, which feed the treadle loom to complete the textiles. All weaving at our workshop is done at my home in Paxtoca, Guatemala with my husband Santos, our sons, and their friends. Muchas gracias!

Lidia, Blanca and Alida

Hola, we are Lidia, Blanca and Alida and we are the creators of the extra weft woven Mayan Star textile featured in this Ethnotek bag. Our weaving workshop is in Comalapa, Guatemala and we create a maximum amount of 20 meters of fabric per month because these designs are so complicated and time-consuming. We are one of the only communities in Guatemala still weaving this motif and are thankful for your support in helping us keep it alive and teach our to younger weavers to carry it on.

Che

Hi, I’m Che and I’m part of a group of 96 artisans in the northern highlands of Vietnam who make hand-embroidered textiles in collaboration with Ethnotek. Hmong women make only 2 tribal skirts per year and it’s our favorite hobby that we do during breaks from our agricultural work. This craft is our heritage that we’re proud to protect and is fun to make because we often socialize, laugh and joke with each other while creating it.

Care and spare parts

In order for you to enjoy your Ethnotek bag for a long time, proper care and cleaning is important.

The fabrics of the artisans will change over time, just as, for example, a pair of jeans changes.

To protect the fabric and the color fastness of the handmade fabrics we recommend using a rain cover in bad weather.

If the bag is dirty inside or outside, we recommend washing it by hand with cold water and a little detergent. In case of heavy soiling, please use a brush with nylon bristles and brush the dirt out of the fabric with it. More care tips.
