Custom embroidery with Mujeres de Maíz

We are absolutely in love with the bird embroidery talent over at Mujeres de Maíz from Santiago Atitlán. We had a few special custom orders of embroidered pieces for very special occasions – one for a newborn joining a family, another for an anniversary, and another for a birthday. Take a look at how these sketches have come to embroidered life!

We found these personalized orders to be so sweet, and we think this would be a great option for the holidays also. Since the handmade process takes time, please plan ahead and get in touch with us if a custom embroidery piece interests you. We can also facilitate turning the embroidery piece into a product, but of course every step takes time 🙂

The best way to get started on your own custom order is to either send us a sketch or a photograph of what you had in  mind, to mari@kakawdesigns.com. We can get the conversation started this way and move on from there.

XOXO,

Mari
