Our Story

Luna Bonita is a New Zealand independent brand of handbags, accessories and home decoration handmade by artisans in Latin America.

Meant for the wanderer soul and the young at heart, our brand celebrates uniqueness and authenticity. The story of the patterns, colours, and textures of traditional Mayan culture is embedded into our majestic functional designs.

Thoughtfully handcrafted in small batches, Luna Bonita is for everyone who is looking for a more conscious alternative to mass-produced items. Aware that the way we shop matters, we believe products should be cared and kept for years, which is why we mainly use upcycled vintage textiles in our handbags.

We partner with indigenous artisans in Guatemala to create authentic high-quality products through ancestral weaving techniques and leather craftsmanship. We recognize the importance of preserving heritage by featuring ethnic traditional designs with a deep cultural meaning.

Luna Bonita supports fair trade by partnering directly with artisans living in remote areas in Guatemala, most of them working in small home workshops. We aim to make a positive difference by being socially responsible and environmentally conscious. 


Hello! i am andrea, the founder oF

Luna Bonita

As a born and raised Guatemalan, Luna Bonita
couldn’t be closer to my heart. I have always been fascinated by the artisan skills of the indigenous communities in my home country. Like folklore, their crafting knowledge is passed on from generation to generation, and every thread carries a story.

My adventurous spirit led me to NZ in 2019. A fair amount of global changes have happened in the past few years, and personally, it has been a time for reflection.

Every day I am more conscious of how our decisions have a significant impact on the life of others and that the power to make a positive difference in this world is in our hands. With that goal in mind, I started the journey of bringing Luna Bonita to life.

Hoping to inspire you to shop ‘Slow made’ while creating reliable income opportunities for small independent artisans. I bring a piece of my Guatemalan colorful heritage to beautiful New Zealand, and I hope you love it as much as I do.
