Our Mission

    unalome zoila weaving

Handbags designed in Los Angeles, handwoven in Ecuador.

In collaboration with our weavers, Unalome’s mission is to support and preserve local tradition. Our bags are handwoven by female artisans on a family farm in the highlands of Ecuador, using a technique passed down from mother to daughter for generations. Each Unalome bag is carefully handwoven with love in small batches using the highest quality, local, and renewable toquilla fibers. As a small, 100% woman-owned and staffed brand, we are proud to empower self-sufficiency for talented women in rural Ecuador.
