IT’S BACK!!!

Our favorite new tradition is back and better than ever. Why you ask? Because this year we’re partnering with Maya Ali and Co. to bring you something extra special.

Let’s start at the beginning; which is a very nice place to start. Last year we created our Mama’s Wishlist. We made it for the moms who work hard all year long. The ones who make birthdays extra special and boo-boos hurt a little less. The ones who pick up on every subtle hint on what their loved ones fancy and jump at the chance to make it happen. We made this wishlist because let’s face it, we’re awesome and all about the details; the people we spend most of our time with, may not be. To help level the playing field, we bring to you our Mama’s Christmas Wishlist! Print it, fill it out and send it over to your loving family. The guesswork is now minimal, making more time for cookie baking and Christmas light viewing 🙂

To make things even more enjoyable this holiday season, we’re giving away THE BEST BAG EVER (and a few other surprises) to the winner of our next giveaway!

Backstory: we met Jacqueline early last year at a trade show in Las Vegas. My assistant and I were standing at Starbucks waiting for our non-sweetened Venti green teas when a woman came up to us and asked about my bag. She said her daughter sold similar bags and that if we were interested, to come to their booth once we got our beverages. A few minutes later we were surrounded by the most gorgeous grouping of handcrafted leather and handwoven bags, backpacks, accessories and more. My assistant and I were in love, and in awe. Jacqueline told us that her family in Guatemala were the ones creating these masterpieces:

“Maya Ali & Co. was founded in 1940 by our great grandmothers. For years we’ve been in the Guatemalan handmade business, we’ve mainly focused on doing wholesale, until recently this year we decided to retail and join the online world.
A lot of the huipils we use are made by either our family members or town friends from our hometown Chichicastenango. We try to use the best huipils, and leather. There are so many stores out there that try and sell similar products to ours, but I guess you could say we stand out from everyone, because till this day everyone that is part of Maya Ali & Co, is 100% indigenous blood, including myself.
We know Guatemala and our culture like no one else, and so when we create our products, to us it’s more than just an item, it’s a piece of history. And that’s what we want to share with the world through our brand. We want to give our customers quality over quantity, and history at the same time.”
This takes us to present day (pun intended). This year we are selecting one lucky mama who participates in our Mama’s Christmas Wishlist giveaway to receive a Medium Huipil Convertable bag (valued at over $250!) and a $200 store credit to WeeStructed! To enter, simply fill out our wishlist pdf and post your list on Instagram with the hashtag #weestructedwishlist FOLLOW BOTH ACCOUNTS @weestructed and @mayaaliandco on Instagram.
