Made by indigenous women of Chiapas, in the south of Mexico.
Paola Ybern is a fashion designer from Barcelona. During a trip to Mexico she discovered a community of women making handbags that she redesigned with these contemporary designs. She created this brand to support the community.
Behomm Shop aspires to sell vegan products, as we are vegan ourselves. We know this is not a vegan product as the bags are made of wool, but we also acknowledge that there are circumstances where some humans can only live-have food by using the only resources they have in their surroundings such as the wool of their flock.

To clean it, turn the bag inside out. Hand wash with cold water and a soft or wool cleaner. Let it dry and iron if you need with medium temperature. Undeniably friction will create little balls that can deteriorate its appearance. Remove them carefully with scissors (do not stretch with fingers).
