Maruca Design embraces the principles of the Arts & Crafts Movement in America (1860-1910)…A movement that invigorated and emphasized the value placed on traditional and decorative craftsmanship using simple forms. The movement stood in opposition to industrial manufacturing and sought to promote the moral, social and economic health of the nation…sound familiar? Maruca, believes that creating small production runs of bags within a cottage industry, creates a consciousness that humanizes their work and makes for a more “harmonious society”. The result is that they can tout a product that is unique, well made and moves from heart to hand. As an American-based company, Maruca seeks to balance resourcefulness and creativity.
