Random Act of Creativity:
Our collection combines the talent of Maya weavers with the deep-found love of the ancient culture by its three founders. In 2013, we three met at the University of St Andrews where many adventures began over the course of our four undergraduate years together. Following a trip to Guatemala in 2018, we fell in love with the rich history that the Maya people wove and wore on their persons daily, opening the door for the Yaxa Journey to begin in December of 2020.
Yaxa was born channeling one of our founders family heritage's, bringing the beauty of the Maya craftsmanship to other discerning waists across the USA.
Yaxa celebrates high-end craftsmanship and slow fashion with each of its spirited belts. We at Yaxa feel strongly about the preservation of the Maya culture, legacy and creative processes through the safeguarding and promotion of dying art forms and ancient techniques such as weaving, leather-making and embroidery.
