Embroidered with floral designs, this bag is an excellent example of the rococo style. Used in indigenous clothing, rococo weaving is a practice enmeshed in the Mayan cosmology: Roki refers to Ix Chel, the goddess of the moon, water, weaving and childbirth – the deity who wove the universe into existence. In Mayan, ‘Ix’ means feminine and divine, whilst ‘Chel’ signifies a rainbow or translucent light.
Melding this rich cultural cosmology and practice with contemporary design, creating a dialogue between traditional inspiration and modern aesthetics, this bag is an embodiment of contemporary Latin America.
Jaguarundi promotes high quality Latin American handicrafts around the world, showcasing the work of a new generation of artisans and designers who meld traditional crafts with contemporary styles. With an excellent eye, unparalleled taste and a focus on social and environmental sustainability, Jaguarundi’s collections are a window into the multicultural world of today’s Latin America.
