Tamara Aida Diaz had a simple idea: Blend her two loves, art and fashion, to create something unique and beautiful. And there was no better way to illustrate the harmonizing concept than through the art of weaving. As it turns out, artisans were eager to learn the ancient art of weaving. After all, weaving is a Zen art and weaving art with style is what TAMBONITA does best.
TAMBONITA handbags are unique, each one is a piece of wearable art. These fun-luxury designs can glam up your day as the sun catches the woven chain, you can watch it glimmer and shine, even more so at night under the lights. You can even personalize your chosen style of TAMBONITA on the Design Your Own tab.
A special thing about these bags is that they can be Upcycled, which means when sent back to our HQ, they can be re-woven in a fresh new color or trim. Your bag can evolve with you, your style and the seasonal trends. This keeps jobs in America and less waste in our landfills. That makes all our TAMBONITAs sustainable and trans-generational.
Today there are many diverse artisans who work under the guidance of Tamara, hand-making bags from one of the chosen themes and expanding on the 11 styles: Eve, Mini-Eve, Asymmetrical Clutch, Transformational Agustina, Hipster (Fanny Pack), Bucket Bag, Nita Backpack, Tote, Tamborine, Trap and Pouch.
We like to think of it as weaving with a purpose; "To encourage unity and harmony in humanity" a lofty goal, but our hearts and hands are ready to go.
