Join us for a fun 3-day online marketplace event with a dozen other ethically-minded brands around the world. We’ve each prepared a personal video and there’s a discount code in there too 😉

Hope to see you there!
Hey, friends in the Bay! I hope to see you at these events coming up in July – I can’t wait to show you what we’ve been creating with our artisan partners in Guatemala.
A couple of weeks ago, we made an announcement to our dear newsletter subscribers that we had select already-made pairs of boots at 50% off. It was Spring Cleaning time!
<<Hey hey, if you’re not on our email list sign up here>>
I was surprised to see how fast the boots went – it looked like our kind subscribers had been waiting for just such a sale. We cleared up some room and our friends got some beautiful boots 🙌 Win-win!
Some of the very first ones to go were ones with bright, detailed designs, often of flowers. The textiles in Guatemala are just so beautiful! So here is a new design, only 2 pairs available to make with this beautiful huipil from the village of San Antonio Aguas Calientes. But don’t worry, with the little leftover parts we will be making some gorgeous silver textile necklaces. We won’t let this piece go to waste!
Design your boot: Original Curved or Original Straight?
Last month, I took off. To Belize and Mexico, on a great adventure.
Guess who came with me? My lucky Quetzal Backpack 😆 It did so great on the trip, we’re celebrating with $20 off until this Friday, March 17th. Use code ADVENTURE at check-out 🙌
Take a look at my epic adventure:

Are you ready for an adventure?
Did you see our Facebook Live video? I had so much fun together with Jess, Molly, and Britini. We’re all designers here in Antigua working with artisans, through all the challenges and the rewards. We had a great hour sharing our stories over some wine 🍷
If you missed it, don’t worry! It’s archived forever on the Perhaps You Need a Little Guatemala page. Make sure to take a look!
We had a blast, thank you Utz for hosting us!
It felt pretty strange to be talking into a screen! But fun to see instant likes and comments.

We’re looking forward to the next one! Do you have a topic you’d like to hear more about? Let us know!
We’re so excited to be hosting a discussion on the challenges and rewards involved in the work we do here as social entrepreneurs in Guatemala. Join us for an interactive live video discussion on Perhaps you need a little Guatemala tomorrow, Tuesday, January 17th at 5pm PST!
Together with the lovely boss ladies behind Stela 9, Luna Zorro, and Uxibal we will be answering questions and having a fun discussion sharing stories. Hope to see you then!
Join the event on Facebook.
We’re pretty excited to announce that all of the rewards have been sent – even for January and February. We gave ourselves plenty of time to fulfill the orders because well, we know from experience that some things can take a long time when it comes to The Handmade.

But yay! We’re also almost done putting these items online, and will also be moving forward with new product development. Stay tuned!
