We’re very excited to share a wonderful feature of our founder, including new exclusive Malena styles, in Minimums Magazine!

Read the stories behind some of Flynn’s favorite possessions and see our new Malena California Indigo weekender bag design (that our friends at Doie Lounge collaborated on with us) and our Bali Black design. This weekender (plus clutches, luggage tags, and camera straps in both designs) is available now in limited quantities!

2016 - 06 - 21 - Minimums - Flynn Coleman-0442As always, the textiles are handcrafted by our artisan partners, and best of all, each bag empowers the female artisans who craft these bags by hand, and combines traditional Maya heritage and art with modern designs. The community we work with includes over 120 indigenous women, and their mission is to improve the quality of life for Maya women artisans and their families, and to contribute to the preservation and promotion of traditional knowledge, art, and culture in Guatemala. To do so, the women and their families are offered education-driven social programs and market access to International Fair Trade and artisanal networks, with a focus on traditional Maya culture and traditions.
