[Our Story]


   The Moroccan Collection

Morocco is a country that has always called to me, ever since I was little.  I had to pinch myself every moment of our 3 week trip.  From exploring the beautiful Medinas and Souks, to driving across the Northern Sahara, every day was stimulating both aesthetically and culturally.  The latest collection from Viajera Imports is just a small glimpse into my travels and time in Morocco.  I hope you enjoy the pieces as much as I enjoyed picking them out while learning about the rich history of the Berber People.

   The Indian Collection

“Viajera,” meaning “Traveler” in Spanish, is the basis of my business, as well as my passion.  I work directly with artisans in India to design and manufacture each piece included in The India Collection. Rest assured that everyone involved in the process is treated fairly and these products are made with love. Each bag is handmade from Indian Dhurrie Rugs with hand block-printed, cotton lining and leather detail. Ethically-sourced labor and natural materials are always our top priority. I hope that by sharing these little tokens from my travels you are able to glimpse into the incredibly colorful country located on the other side of the world, India.

All of the cotton threads are hand-dyed, spun, and woven to create each Dhurrie Rug

It takes a village...and lots of hard work
