Guatemala Production Trip — June 2018

A 10-day visit to check on production and visit new artisan groups to collaborate with.

I spent 10 days traveling around Guatemala meeting with our artisan partners to check on new and current production. I also got to visit several groups that we are hoping to begin partnering with in the future. My wife came along — it was so much fun to get to show her another of the places we work. 

Sometimes production meetings end up happening in a gas station parking lot on the way to another workshop! Checking out new Panalito colors for our placemats and runners.

I was incredibly impressed by the women's cooperative in Cajolá and hope to collaborate with them in the future!
