Locally sourced leather and handwoven textiles handmade into boots and accessories for all the world to enjoy. Take a look at their website for lots of information and amazing photographs. I was so excited when I found this, words cannot describe! I know a few people who are going to LOVE these... and the heart behind it.
So bloody cool. They work direct with artisans and shoemakers in Guatemala, central America to bring incredible handcrafted boots and other beautiful products to people like you and me.
Each textile is handwoven and makes them pretty unique, another amazing thing about this venture. You can see all the steps here.
Essentially you design your boots, you choose your textile (um, yup!) style and colour of boot leather and even the type of sole you want. They are then tailored to your measurements and are handmade in every sense of the word. Every piece used is locally sourced, from each metal stud to the leather and rubber used.
I have spent approximately 2 hours looking at the styles and textiles, dreaming about a future purchase. I might even contact them about designing a print, how cool would that be?
