WORKSHOP curated | PALOROSA

The Palorosa Project aesthetic is minimal, essential and contemporary.

Inspired by Guatemala City and the country's landscape, founder, Italian born Cecilia Pirani works with local Guatemalan artisans to design and produce hand woven baskets and objects 'curated from distant places for everyday urban use'.

The Palorosa Project has evolved from a desire to rethink and re-purpose utilitarian objects using innovative colours and shapes. To bring together design and artisan whilst promoting local craft and manufacture.

The most important aspect of The Palorosa Project is the partnership with local communities to understand, develop and sustain the handmade process as well as material and colour research. Hand woven in Guatemala incorporating recycled plastic, each product is created with a colour palette that is subtle, earthy and soft and that reflects the local Guatemalan culture as well as Cecilia's unique design aesthetic.

We are pleased to be partnering with Palorosa and to support this craft-preservation and local manufacture project. We have selected our favourite bi-coloured totes from the current collection which are available in 3 differing sizes and can be used as shopping totes or home storage baskets.
