ZACARIAS1925 bags are hand-woven exclusively by S.C.Vizcarra, a workshop founded in 1925 in the Philippines by Creative Director Rita Nazareno’s grandmother, Segundina Vizcarra. Starting as a small atelier working on hand- made pineapple fiber became known all over the world.
She trained artisans, instilled the importance of craftsmanship, and her atelier thrived. Over the years, the workshop has evolved under the guidance of Segundina’s only child, Vicky. The family has always known the significance of exceptional hand-made products exporting globally ever since.
The artisans of ZACARIAS1925 have mastered the art of weaving luxury handbags and accessories. Many weaving methods and combinations are distinctive to the company. The design and production are all done in our workshop allowing personalization of items.
