Mastering one's own craft is a highly rewarding process that ATHINAEUM truly understands and shares with you with each bag, wallet or accessory we created. The textiles, in fact have had a previous life as traditional Mayan blouse or skirt. Each garment was designed and handwoven by it´s previous owner. When the garment comes to the end of its wearing life ATHINAEUM reclaims those garments and upcycles the amazing designs.
The panels are passed on to artisan leatherworkers who craft them into quality handbags, backpacks, wallets and accessories.
