    Story & Highlights

    With a strong emphasis on sustainability, Nada Duele utilizes ethically sourced materials, including recycled brown glass handblown by master artisans in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Additionally, the brand employs upcycled textiles, ethically manufactured in Guatemala using high-quality, sustainably sourced deadstock fabric. Woven by master artisans in the picturesque highlands, each creation embodies a rich cultural heritage and a dedication to eco-conscious practices.

    Nada Duele has partnered with the National Forest Institute of Guatemala (INAB), a recognized institution for sustainable forestry development. The brand actively supports the reduction of vulnerability to climate change through annual tree planting events, where over 100 trees are planted to minimize the carbon footprint.
