One of the reasons we started was because no one seemed to care about this ancient craft. Now, there are more weavers working, then when we started. Although far from being optimal it is something we all are proud - and relieved - off.
We believe we have strengthened our community by projecting its unique voice in the right direction.
We love what we do partly because we work directly with nature. In return we treat it with the utmost respect. All our materials are sustainable, all our manufacture is done locally, where it is needed.
Like our bags, our ceramic charm is done by hand, one by one. Made by a local potter.
When you buy a TOINO ABEL bag you are supporting originality, moving this craft forward, nature, dignified wages and working conditions and a team who love what they do.
