Do good, do well
We believe in doing good while doing well, so we like to think it goes without saying that we do our best to engage in fair, collaborative and respectful business with our customers at home and artisan partners worldwide. At the same time, weaving and textile crafts have an important place in history and culture…as we see it, it’s time to elevate what’s long been considered “women’s work” to its rightful place as art.
Each one of our finds has its own story to tell. As part of our commitment to be creative collaborators with our artists and customers, we’re sharing a bit about each product’s background and history.
Along with product descriptions, we’ll highlight the nature of the medium, whether it’s heirloom or a newly-designed pattern weaving, as well as our artist-partner arrangement.
“The Goods” of Dog Bandanas by Sam & Nala
These casual bandanas begin their journey as new fabric that was hand woven by members of a women’s cooperative in the highlands of Guatemala. We work with the artisan weavers to bring their art and imagery to the fabrics we use. We then take these custom fabrics to a small family-run sewing shop outside Chichicastenango, Guatemala to transform them into wearable fun for your pup. By setting their own wages and prices, weavers and sewers have the opportunity to express their creativity while carrying on the tradition of weaving and earning a fair wage.
We work with local buyers familiar with community markets to hand-select classic heirloom handwoven fabrics. We then take these fabrics to a small family-run sewing shop outside Chichicastenango, Guatemala to transform them into wearable fun for your pup. These durable weavings are enjoying a second life, thanks to the artistry of women, whose efforts and contributions are not forgotten.
