Founded in the largest remaining tropical forest of Central America, at Itza Wood we work conscientiously with the nature that surrounds us. From our traditional array of gorgeous, exotic woods, we bring you our most recent collection of FIBRAS, created with vines, roots, and barks.
Curiosity paired with possibility drew us back into the jungle to create this collection. When the world shut down in 2020 we trekked into our backyard with machetes, rubber boots, and a group of women eager to learn. We had been searching for a way to connect more women in our rural communities with opportunities and FIBRAS gave us the answer. This collection embodies their will and their courageous spirit.
We are proud to see a new group of 20 women form to craft jungle fibers. Their dedication inspires us; we are friends, collaborators and community. With countless hours, research and experimentation, the FIBRAS collection took form, remaining true to our values of craftsmanship, community first and sustainable production. Join us in this journey of true and honest change.
