Palorosa is a lifestyle brand founded in 2014 by Cecilia Pirani an Italian – Guatemalan landscape architect. The project rethinks utilitarian objects, by using innovative colors and shapes, designing a series of tote bags, purses and small accessories inspired by distant places for an everyday urban use. Palorosa’s calling comes from Cecilia Pirani’s desire to make architecture and fashion coexist and collaborate, to create products ready to wear and to be used as home accessories as well. Made by local artisans the collection of woven baskets and objects handmade in Guatemala incorporate recycled plastic with a unique palette.
Today there is an atelier and workshop based in Guatemala City and a studio in Milan. Palorosa works with a team of creatives and weavers in Guatemala City and with different groups of artisans in the countryside, especially in the area of the western highlands.
