About

Stela 9 began in the summer of 2010 by an archaeology assistant with a love of Mayan culture, artisan leather crafting and weaving traditions. The line was initially created through a meticulous process of sourcing precious stones, recycled textiles and ethically procured leather that represented our worldly aesthetic.  Today the brand continues to concentrate on the importance of preserving cultural traditions of artisans throughout Latin America and India. Our items evoke wanderlust and are handmade by skilled artisans.  Stela 9 directly contributes to the livelihood and sustainability of the indigenous communities that these cherished items travel from.
