Handcrafted Bags

Creating art. Embracing roots. Honoring history

“Fashion is the most fascinating way to honor our ancestors”

Claudia Akel

MANIFESTO

A tribute to the elements, culture, our ancestors and life.

Claudia Akel’s designs are born from our ancestors' legacy and the interpretation of the textures, colors, fibers and elements of nature. Blending history and fashion, all pieces are unique and handcrafted, inspired by the creation of art that can be worn on a daily basis.


UNIQUE HANDCRAFTED ART

HARMONY IN THE ELEMENTS

HARMONY IN THE ELEMENTS

All pieces are handcrafted by indigenous tribes with materials of their own region, natural fibers such as magüey in wick, fique, sheep’s wool, wild cotton and goat hair. 

Each piece is then carefully intervened under the direction of Claudia Akel, using leather, studs, stones, crystals, hand-painted silks and other materials, elevating each handbag to a unique masterpiece.

All elements are fused, through the creativity of the designer, in harmony with the originality of the piece and the traces of its history.
