Did you see?  Mari was featured on a series put together by Shatter the Looking Glass!   Take a look at the conversation with questions organized by Kelly from Cardamom Collective.

One thing I really love about Kakaw is how thoughtful and developed the products are, and how they take the work and situations of the artisans into consideration. What drew you to working in a way that was ethical and sustainable? 

This is such an interesting concept, because to me it’s the most natural thing in the world.  Of course the women prefer to weave and embroider from home – I would, too!  I thought briefly about setting up a workshop for the leathersmiths, to facilitate quality control and supervision… but then realized that it would be so much work to just get the workers to come into one place, and to set hours… artisans in Guatemala don’t work that way.  And as long as they get the work done, why should it matter?  I like to work from home, and just the same, the artisans we work with do, too.
