Fabiola's story

Fabiola is an artisan from Mexico who specializes in handcrafted embroidered leather handbags. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of leather and hardware.

Fabiola has been selling through NOVICA since 2018. This is her story:

Fabiola says, "I was born in a Mexican town where leather work has been a tradition for many, many years. I fell in love with our leather handbags as well as the traditional embroidery of Southern Mexico. I realized I could combine these colors and this technique to create bright and attractive bags with my own personal touch. I love the vast range of colors and combinations that aren't well known. I've discovered them with the help of textile artisans in Yucatan, Oaxaca and Chiapas. This is how I achieve this innovative look and transmit the traditions of Mexico through my designs. I love my work! I confess, I even dream about crafting bags at night. My heart's desire is that people can see a bit of me in every one of the handbags we create."

"Thank you for all the support you provide to artisans."
