Palorosa was founded by Cecilia Pirani, an architect and design consultant, based in Milan and Guatemala City, who merged her experience in interior design and landscape architecture with her passion for object curation and design.

Palorosa is a lifestyle brand that started with a series of tote bags inspired by Guatemala City and the country’s landscape. The project evolved from a desire to rethink and repurpose an utilitarian object by using innovative colors and shapes. By working closely with local artisans Palorosa created a high quality line of tote bags with a contemporary feeling.

The result are woven tote bags handmade in Guatemala incorporating recycled plastic with a unique palette. These versatile and extremely durable bags can be used in a variety of occasions.
