Daniel Pineda of Daniel Designs is a powerhouse all on his own! He is the designer and founder of his own line of handbags made in Guatemala. We are extremely lucky to be able to collaborate with him on designs that Fe Project exclusively offers.
Daniel was born and raised in Mataquescuintla, Guatemala and at a very early age he was bitten by the entrepreneur bug. There is nothing Daniel can't do! He opened and ran a coffee shop, has dabbled in interior design, construction and also makes jewelry! He currently lives in Antigua and never runs out of ideas and inspiration.
