Creator Story - Anita Lara


Just provides access to markets to Designers that work with Artisan Communities in order to provide more opportunities for them.

Anita Lara is a slow fashion, ethnic design house. Her luxury brand was born for her admiration for Mayan culture and heritage, specifically the rich, handmade textiles that Maya women have worn for generations as a symbol of pride and belonging.

Each textile is a work of art, woven and dyed by hand in a process that requires hundreds of hours of dedicated labor. Behind each piece is a team of craftspeople whose work reifies a sense of luxury and tradition. 

Her high-end line is being sold in the US at Just Studio and enabling Anita to provide more work opportunities for women artisans in Guatemala.
