Stela 9: Ethnic Love

Stela 9 began in the summer of 2010 by an archaeology assistant with a love of Mayan culture, artisan leather crafting and weaving traditions. The line was created through a meticulous process of sourcing precious stones, recycled textiles and ethically procured leather that represented their worldly aesthetics and the importance of preserving cultural traditions of artisans throughout Latin America. 

Their items are handmade by skilled artisans. Stela 9 contributes to the livelihood and sustainability of the indigenous communities that these cherished items travel from.
