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 😉
If you think it’s fun/funny to see Mari get awkward with her video message, this is your chance 😆 Join the event by clicking here.
Hope to see you there!
Did you know that we loooove to see where our handmade creations have gone? It’s so much fun to share how everyone wears each item, and on what kinds of adventures the pieces get to go on. I also have a great time sharing these pictures with our partner artisans – they get a kick out of it, too!
This month we’re hosting a photo contest via Instagram ❤️
Enter by June 30th for your chance to win a handwoven, naturally-dyed ikat scarf. Prize will go to my favorite image, as simple as that 😉
This photo is from last year’s winner, Holley!
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.
We’ve got a fun-filled ethical bundle for you, straight from Guatemala!
We’ve teamed up with Toj to bring you this ethical bundle just in time for summer sunshine. Get a hand-embroidered Kakaw Designs Picnic Blanket and a pair of Toj sandals of your choice for $140, including shipping to the US! That’s almost $50 off, which we are able to do by combining orders together and shipping to you directly from Guatemala.
I loved having these sandals with me in Mexico, with their interchangeable laces. I’ve tried quite a few different ways to wear them, but I know there are so many more – it’s fun to play around with!
Our Picnic Blanket is also great for the beach 🌴
I love the handwoven straps, so many colors to choose from! I’m a sucker for this lovely green.
Interested? Just Email me (email@example.com) and we’ll arrange orders through PayPal. Offer valid until May 21st, and we’ll be shipping the last week of May, just in time for summer.
Take a look, everyone! I’m excited to be taking Kakaw Designs to the Bay Area and even to Europe (for the first time!) 🙌
Here’s the happening for June, and there’s more coming for July… Will let you know ASAP!
Saturday, June 3rd: Pop-up at Wallflower in San Francisco. We had a great time last year so we’re doing another mimosa-drinking fun day in The Mission!
Sunday, June 4th: Story-telling and Trunk Show at The Moon in Oakland. Come join us for tea and chocolates (reserve your spot through the link), and see one-of-a-kind treasures in the beautiful plant-based dye studio!
June 9th – 11th: Fesch Market in Vienna, Austria. Our first time in Europe! Who’s around to say “hallo”?
I hope to see you this summer!

When this lovely gal Jessica Boynton told me she was going to wear her Kakaw footwear (she’s got three pairs, after all) for a photoshoot, I was so excited. I knew the images would come out so beautiful. But these photos have exceeded any possible expectations, they are so stunning! Big props to the clearly very talented Caroline Alexander! Thank you both for these amazing images ❤️
Make sure to take a look at the original post by Caroline here 🌺
