"I'm a mapmaker-turned-textile-hunter, scouring the world for vibrant patterns, master artisanship, and the opportunity to blend my modern designs with indigenous weaving techniques. "
When Roseli set out to make a bold, vibrant handbag that had a story, she had no idea it would be smack-dab in Oaxaca, Mexico. Specifically, the village of Teotitlán Del Valle. That's where her skilled weavers live and work––they boast several generations-worth of weaving and dying techniques––and now, they're getting paid fair wages for their work too. They use only organic wool, and it's dyed naturally with plants and flowers. And Roseli? She's ecstatic that she's able to help these skilled women make a living. An excellent story for a handbag if we ever heard one. < less
