It was so fun to meet Ali, owner of Nena & Co back in December and have loved her company from the start! Her bags and products are designed and created by the women of Guatemala. Maya families have transformed their traditional huipils (shirts) and cortes to be the decorative exterior of their bags laced with hand cut leather to make them more durable for your everyday use. The intricate and colorful designs are absolutely beautiful! Ali is Guatemalan herself and I loved learning all about her history and purpose on her website (read HERE).
We love supporting brands with a philanthropic purpose. From totes, to camera straps, to backpacks, boots and everyday bags, Nena & Co offers one-of-a-kind items that we adore. I have loved using my Day Bag II (shown above) as my everyday diaper bag as I tote all sorts of “treasures” around for my kiddos. I love how multi-purpose they are. Everyone needs one of these!
