Yaxa is a fashion brand from Guatemala, bringing you handcrafted leather belts and accessories for the modern day traveller. Each piece is handwoven, hand branded and handmade by the Maya in the Guatemalan highlands. Weaving was the means by which the Maya communicated their thoughts and feelings about the natural world, how stories were told, and histories recorded. Woven textiles and leather goods played a central role in civil and religious ceremonies. We hope that by highlighting and sharing these histories through our products, that it motivates those to travel and experience the many beauties that Guatemala has to offer.
