San Juan la Laguna

Our video adventure to San Juan la Laguna was an incredible experience.  We were there with the talented videographer Joel Sharpe to produce a short film documenting the process behind the textiles made for our boots and bags by the cooperative Corazón del Lago.  Oh, and what a process that is!

We’re still working on the final edits of the film, so I don’t want to spoil it for you, but here are some behind the scenes shots from those wonderful few days:
