    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  utilitarian objects by using innovative colors and shapes. 

    By working closely with local artisans we created a high quality line of tote bags with a contemporary feeling.

    The result are woven bags and baskets handmade in Guatemala incorporating recycled plastic with a unique palette. The color combinations are subtle and spontaneous:  they range from earthy tones to bold bright tones with soft and delicate accents. 

    The tote bags and pots series are the first of a collection of objects curated from distant places for everyday urban use. These are versatile and extremely durable and can be used in a variety of occasions. They also double as home and commercial spaces accessories.

    Palorosa was founded in 2014 in Guatemala by Cecilia Pirani, architect and design consultant, based in Milan and Guatemala City. She merged her experience in interior design and landscape architecture with her passion for object curation and design, with the idea to promote craft preservation and local manifacture.

    The name Palorosa derives from the Tabebuia Rosea, also called 'Palo de rosa', a tree native to Central America, characterized by a gray wooden rose. Its simplicity and sophistication embodies our sensibility for materials and colors.
