CARE GUIDE: Spot clean only with a damp cloth. Treat gently.


THE RAINBOW CLUTCH BAG
The elaboration of this bag is a very complex process. The leaves of a special palm found in the region of Puebla, Mexico, are carefully chosen, cut and put in the sun to dry for a very specific time. This raw material is used to weave large sheets of "petate" and later these sheets are dyed and softened again with steam so that the fibers of palm do not later fall apart. Then the shapes patterns for different types of bags or purses are cut, lining and biases are added and sewn together with nylon thread.

The embroidery with bead-work and sequin is done by hand putting one bead at a time. The patterns are inspired by the typical costume of “china poblana” native to the region of Puebla, Mexico.

The elaboration of a single bag embroidered with beads can take up to 3 weeks!

What Are People Saying About Kante's Treasure?

Explore Palm Weaving With Kante


Video

Crafting a petate (palm mat) starts by cutting the palms leaves and drying them in the sun. The best ones are selected for weaving.


The entire process of weaving a small palm purse takes between 2 and 3 days. It’s done 100% by hand. Today, the embroidery used on palm crafts are inspired on Puebla’s typical dress known as China Poblana which is embroidered with beads and sequin. 

Explore Embroidery With Kante


Video

Mesoamerica was home to highly advanced ancient cultures. Embroidery always stood up as their most iconic artistic expression. They use what we know today as a waist loom + agave fibers & cotton as their main raw materials. This technique is frequently used in Oaxaca + Chiapas in Southwestern Mexico & consists of weaving thread using a wooden loom which is tied to a tree on one end & to the artisan’s waist on the other.

Explore Looming With Kante


Video

Kante's artisans use different techniques such as cross stitch or “hilvan” style embroidery to capture their culture’s worldview. Worldview's an element that ceases to be abstract once it's captured on a figure or pattern. Today, Mazahua women, part of 1 of the largest ethnic groups in central Mexico, keep ancestors' memories alive by describing the surroundings & their feelings through images in their embroidery.
