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!

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?

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 love all our products, but we’re so excited that this chilly season the top favorite has been the newest scarf addition, our Corte Wrap. It’s beautiful and cozy, but more that that, we are including two different groups of artisans in its production – the weavers who prepare the naturally-dyed cotton thread, and the embroiderers who do all the amazing embroidery work, stitch by stitch ❤️
Francisca with the naturally-dyed thread her cooperative prepares. She liked the finished prototype!
Embroidery master sisters at work!
Stitch by stitch…
And the result is a super soft, cozy scarf ❤️
Want your own? Use discount code SCARFLOVE for $20 off your own Corte Wrap just until January 25, 2017.
