While it’s incredibly satisfying and fulfilling to see our aritsan-made designs come full-cycle from seed to fruit, we’ve also realized that we LOVE collaborating with other creative minds out there. We love working together to get our creative juicing flowing, and creating something new.
So if you’re interested in collaborating with Kakaw Designs, just shoot us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know! Let’s work together!
What we’ve done so far:
- Our Perrito Collection began as a collaboration for a fundraiser for Fundación Waybi / Bocalán Guatemala, organizations that work with animal-assisted therapy here in Guatemala. We’re huge fans of the work that they do, and it was an honor to put together a fundraising event in 2015, and from there make the Perrito Collection available on our online store with 20% of the proceeds going to this great cause.
- Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2015 in Guatemala City was an incredible experience, working with and learning from Liza Carrillo from Vessel. Together, we prepared some amazing looks for this runway fashion show. This was a truly WOW experience, seeing our artisan-made products on the runway worn by models, accessorizing stunning looks by Vessel.
- We’re so excited to be working with Cardamom Collective, starting with this collaboration for one-of-a-kind pendants. Using leather and textile scraps from our production of boots and bags, we crafted the pendants using sterling silver. And then off to Kelly they went, where they received their finishing touches incorporating vintage coins, Afghan lapis, and other lovely accents, giving the pendants a truly global feel. They are available for sale on the Cardamom Collective website.
We’re excited to see what else we can achieve with others. Want to be part of it? Just let us know!
