This small handbag of palm leaves with wool fringes is the summer hit of the NIMA collection. Small and practical and giving that extra touch to your summer look!
NIMA is a small Mexican fashion accessories brand is run by Alejandra, a young creative designer and entrepreneur, living in a paradisiacal bay on he West Coast of Mexico. Inspired by local beach-life and artisans, Alejandra started her own collection of fashion accessories. What I like about her collection is that she gives a personal and contemporary twist to traditional handicrafts. She works with very traditional products and techniques; but she always comes up with new ideas to make them actually fashionable! Sometimes it is just about a small detail. And when she notices others do the same, she manages to find another innovative version.
Her talent and refined sense of style gets picked up by fashionistas in Mexico and certainly in Tulum, the paradise for stylish travelers with love for nature, natural materials and sober designs.
Alejandra works together with a community of local artisans in Guerrero, founded to create a better life for their families.
