Maruca Design is a small, intimate studio nestled in the foothills of Boulder, Colorado. Every bag still hand cut and sewn, kindly here at home. We, at Maruca, believe that creating small production runs of our bags within a cottage industry, creates a consciousness that humanizes our work and makes for a more “harmonious society”. The result is that we can tout a product that is unique, well made and moves from heart to hand.
Though we are proud to tout that we are American made, we are highly inspired by global crafts. We thank Indonesia and India for their glorious Ikats, Eastern Europe for floral work and Africa for their bouncing, bold patterns. Ultimately, we thank Mother Nature…each line consistently has an organic vibe, woody weaves with brilliant tones.
Our bags are made from a fabric called “Jacquard”…Jacquard means an intricately woven pattern using a special loom in the weaving process. The conception of our fabric patterns begins with drawings, cut paper, collage and re-worked imagery. We then collaborate with brilliant textile designers from select, smaller independent U.S. fabric mills, who then bring our vision into fruition. The content of our fabrics can vary…The threads are cottons, rayons and synthetics—many of which are from recycled plastic!
