Check it out, we’re so excited that our products have been featured two times in just one week by ethical blogs, both in the UK. Kakaw is going global! Take a look at what they’re saying:
#1: Quetzal Wrap on Curiously Conscious:
Large enough to cover my shoulders and head should I want it, and thin enough to wrap traditionally as a scarf, I’ve been throwing this on with my long-sleeve tops to wear in and out of the house. It was especially great when combatting a sore throat I had this month, keeping my neck warm and comfy all day long!
Big thanks to Besma from Curiously Conscious for taking the time to take these awesome photos and write about our Quetzal Wrap. The scarf is available in two naturally-dyed colors. Make sure to see the rest of the product review!
#2:Quetzal Tote on Moral Fibres:
The bag is from Kakaw Designs, and is handmade by traditional Guatemalan artisans using locally sourced materials, both custom made and repurposed. It’s roomy, practical and gorgeous (but not trend driven), and is pretty much the perfect size for carting round my work paraphernalia. It’s sturdily made, and something that’s going to be part of my wardrobe for a long long time to come.
Wendy from Moral Fibres is going back to work after maternity leave, and wanted to highlight her favorite picks for this Fall. She looks great with our Quetzal Tote, and it sounds like she will get good use out of it so that’s great 🙂 Find out her top Autumn picks here.
It’s always exciting to see our products on other places and hear what people are saying – so grateful for all the support from the ethically-minded community out there 🙌 Helping each other make a difference by living mindfully, and that includes our choices in fashion. We choose slowing down fashion and supporting ethical practices.
Sometimes the best photos are the blurry ones with silly faces. We don’t get to share those much on our website (I guess we should keep things clean and professional…🙄) so from a couple of recent little photoshoots with friends, here’s a selection of The Best Fun Shots:

And hey, want to learn about the embroidery artisans behind the beautiful Corte Wrap (now only$67.50 with code)? Take a look at this post by Mari published on The Curious Button.
Did you see? My little write-up on my experience visiting a new community we are working with was published on the ethical lifestyle blog The Curious Button. We’re honored!
The sisters Anita and Teresita work on our Corte Wraps, and they do a great job – blanket stitch all along the edges of the textile, and macrame fringes on two ends to give the scarf a good shape. They live in a community near Sumpango, where we have just started to expand for embroidery work.
These women do not live in castles, have super modern appliances, or fancy cars. But they’re also not destitute. I think a part of me was afraid that they might be living in some terrible conditions, but I was relieved to see that they had such a lovely home. I want to paint an honest picture of these two sisters in particular:
They have a beautiful home. The sisters are close. They take pride in their traditional art of embroidery. Their work is excellent. They live in a mostly agricultural village with dirt roads. Their kitchen is big, with two wood-burning stoves for lots of cooking. They have plenty of room to host community gatherings at their home. They are welcoming, and they seem happy.
