The process of creating this collection is detailed and tedious. Before Squeeze de Citron artisans can even begin weaving, the palm must be prepared. First, the palm is harvested from the fields. It then goes through a rigorous cutting and cleaning process to prepare it for paint. Next, each palm leaf is painted individually – one by one – and then hung to dry. Only after the palm is dry can the artisans start weaving the beautiful pieces in this collection.
The small bags take one day to make. The medium bags are made in two days. The large bags take up to four days to make. Once the bags are made, the leather pieces are added and a finished product is born into the Palma de Citron™ collection.
Handles and tags are made out of leather.
