Kakaw Designs partners with local artisan groups and individuals to create unique and high-quality designs.
We stay true to our commitment to work directly with local artisans without any middlemen by buying directly from artisans as much as possible, or partnering with local cooperatives. The pay is agreed upon and above fair-trade requirements. We make sure the individual artisans or cooperatives are paid promptly.
We love working with our partner cooperative of weavers at Lake Atitlán, our embroidery group in Sumpango, and our newest weavers around Cobán! They all do wonders making our designs come to life, and we are so pleased to be supporting such talented female artisans.
