Kakaw Designs only uses locally-sourced materials, both custom-made and repurposed.

Handmade. Heartfelt.

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 average.  We make sure the individual artisans or cooperatives are paid promptly.

We love working with our partner cooperative of weavers at Lake Atitlán, and our embroidery group in Sumpango! They both do wonders making our designs come to life, and we are so pleased to be supporting such talented female artisans.
