Nahui Ollin bags are made from recycled materials. Defective candy wrappers are rescued before being brought to the landfills and used in the construction of each bag. It can take up to four thousand candy wrappers and four days for an individual artisan to construct one bag. Our unique process ensures that no two bags are the same, and while they are made from candy wrappers, gum wrappers and soda bottle labels, they stand the test of time and weather for tear-free, long-term durability.With Nahui Ollin, you are truly purchasing a one of a kind piece. All of our goods are produced under Fair Trade and Sweatshop free practices in Mexico. Our growing family of upcycling partners include Tootsie, Disney, Hersheys, pez, and Target. This has enabled us to create a cottage industry there, and the sale of every Nahui Ollin item helps support local artisans who rely on this trade to care for their land and their families.
