FEATURED TECHNIQUE
HAND EMBROIDERY

All TEIXCHEL clutches are designed and hand embroidered in-house with historical Mayan patterns. To create opportunity for more artisans, TEIXCHEL clutches are designed on plant-based fabric with a grid pattern, making it easier to embroider freely.

Each design holds historical significance in the Mayan culture - the zig zag pattern represents the cycle of life, the crosses around the border symbolize the four cardinal points (North, South, East, West) with a diamond representing the sun in its center.
