Etzbal is a proudly Guatemalan company, founded to integrate our rich cultural and traditional heritage of fabrics with current trends in the world of fashion. We create contemporary leather handbags and accessories handmade in Guatemala, co-creating together with the passion, creativity, and skill of artisans, artists, and design students.
As a company, we are extremely proud of our roots. Therefore, we focus on sharing this ancient art to transcend borders. We aspire to be a source of work for families and organizations that want their masterpieces to be appreciated in the modern world.
Our goal is to contribute to the development of our country’s art by providing artisans in disadvantaged areas with job opportunities and training in hopes of contributing to their economic stability and professional growth.
The pillars of our community are our artisans, who have inherited decades of knowledge in the art of weaving natural fibers on a backstrap or standing loom. This tradition has been passed down with pride from generation to generation within artisan families.
The uniqueness of each fabric and distinctive techniques of each artisan create original designs that are rich in history and cultural innovation. This fusion, combined with the professional finishes of the artisans, is what allows handmade products to be competitive in a market that demands outstanding quality at an affordable price.
