Full Circle Impact
Our sustainable bags have a full circle impact on our eight artisan communities.
Each item is carefully hand crafted by Mexican and Guatemalan artisans. Our partnerships with these artisans not only provide jobs, but also a sense of purpose, renewed hope, and an improved quality of life.
Squeeze De Citron was founded with the intention of creating sustainable programs for artisanal communities. Each product represents the work of talented and dedicated Mexican and Guatemalan artisans. The bags are an expression of the unique and extraordinary cultural talent across these communities.
Artisans can spend up to one week carefully crafting just one Core Citron Bag - with an additional 3 days dedicated to creating the handles. The bags are made with 100% recycled plastic. Artisans weave these materials into our carefully curated and stunning in-house designs. This results in highly durable products with beautifully, sophisticated design.
Elevate entertaining with our curated, hand-painted Citron Spread Boards. Whether you are hosting a casual gathering or an elegant dinner party, our Citron Boards will bring an element of artistry to every event.
To create the intricate, colorful, and unique patterns on each board, Mexican artisans employ the traditional technique used to paint Alebrijes. Alebrijes are traditional, mystical, hand-carved wooden animals, popular in Mexican history, culture and folklore. The creatures are painted in vibrant colors and patters. This piece of Mexican tradition is reflected on each of our Spread Boards, which are the styled with our signature Pom.
The Spread Boards are made of 100% pine wood. Each board takes about three days to make.
