Gray Boots is a small company based in Antigua, Guatemala, formed through the love of artisan work, travel and friendship. We are fully aware that sustainability and ethics are concepts too often used as mere marketing tools. We won’t.
Our goal is simple. By combining design with traditional weaving and leatherwork we want to create high-quality fashion products and support local artisans so that they can keep their time-honored craft alive.
Right now we are in the process of developing a partnership with a women’s cooperative and a fair trade certified association. We are still figuring out how Gray Boots will effectively contribute to providing the artisans a means to sustaining their culture.
We are committed to bringing complete transparency and traceability to the manufacturing process, as well as the customer’s experience. Therefore, we will update this information as we go on moving from the abstract to the more specific facts and forms of collaboration.
