Alma Large Taco Bag in Tumeric
Large woven palm clutch.
A folded tortilla is already a perfect design. There is nothing more beautiful than a simple form that responds directly to its function: carrying something inside.
Everything we design at ALMA is made of time telling materials, from the palm foraged from the mountains of Guerrero to the incorporation of repurposed silver from vintage jewelry in Taxco. Our products are handcrafted with the utmost care and respect by makers who are masters at their craft. They are designed to age gracefully and last for a lifetime if they are tended to just the right way.
—We believe tradition and innovation are inextricably linked

Here we suggest a few precautions by material to maintain the original condition of your ALMA products.
All of our palm accessories are designed and produced in collaboration with the Fermín Procopio family of weavers. The palm is foraged in the nearby mountains and the majority of our dyes are sourced from food grade ingredients. Variations in color, shape and technique render each piece unique.
If you decide to dispose of one of our palm pieces we encourage you to remove and recycle all metal wares and textile labels. The remaining palm can be treated as organic waste: compost it so its nutrients return to the biosphere.
Exposure to intense sunlight as the bright tones may lighten and reveal subtle hues.
Exposure to oils, perfume, alcohol or cosmetics and other harsh chemicals. If any of these occurs wipe with a damp clean cloth.
Dry-cleaning and washing machine as they may tear the palm apart.
Checking the weather forecast to protect it on rainy days.
Using a steam iron on low heat over a clean cloth on your palm piece to press into shape.
Not over-filling your bag so it can conserve its original shape.
Storing it occasionally in its dust cover filled with crumpled paper inside to maintain its original shape.
