Ceibo is a handbag-accessory vegan brand created by Maria Cadena in Houston, Texas in 2016. Its name refers to the Ceibo tree, one of Maria’s favorite trees which grows along the Pacific coast in Ecuador.
All products are designed and handmade by Maria at her home studio in Houston, dedicating several hours in designing, cutting, sewing and assembling each Ceibo item. This results in the production of small batches per month. For example, a mini tote handbag requires three hours from cutting to final assembling. This ‘slow approach’ encourages taking time to ensure quality production and gives a personal value to each product.
