"Dream in a jungle" charcoal and pastel on paper. 24" x 18"
When I started sketching I had no idea where this piece was going, I was just listening to music and expressing whatever came to mind. About 2 hours into this exercise a scene started to take hold...
We recently collaborated with local artist Marlon Puac in creating a piece that blends Tz’utujil Mayan culture with clean minimalist lines. Incorporating hand-woven Tz’utujil textile & Marlon’s art has been a wonderful experience, the various components came together naturally and we’re very happy with the outcome. We look forward to exploring his geometric work throughout our line. Below is a bio on Marlon and the inspiration behind his compositions, the bag is available on our website:). 🎨Visual artist Marlon Puac is Tz'utujil born in 1984 where he spent his adolescence, there after graduating from the National School of Plastic Arts "Rafael Rodríguez Padilla" Guatemala, 2005 where he specialized in painting. He was recently selected to participate in the book "Between Centuries" Contemporary Art of Central America and Panama 2015, developed by the Rozas Botrán Foundation of Guatemala City.

The influence of linear compositions on leather bags comes from my art that interprets the ancestral art of the indigenous fabric that represents our cultural identity.
Electric atmosphere on this picture is definately a result of high energy of the Makalu natural pointed crystals. Crystal weights are one of our first designs on ear weights and definately one of our favorites...especially when we see them worn by our friends.
“Kaskara” 48in x 48in on aluminum. Part of my #bladeseries this piece has five colors compared the normal four colors and features a different pattern structure than normal. The colors have pearl in them so the whole piece sparkles in person. Head into @hgpalmsprings to check it out for yourself. #palmsprings
