We are so excited to announce that we have been selected as semifinalists in the La Idea competition! La Idea is a contest promoting collaboration between social entrepreneurs in the US and Latin America, which is what we are all about!
We met our partners, Renate and Andrea of Guatemala-based Wanderlust Wear, and instantly connected. We have similar backgrounds, mission and vision for our companies, opportunities, as well as similar challenges. We both know what it's like to work with small producers and make custom products, and what resources are needed to make the communities flourish.
We plan to work together to enable access to market and opportunities for many more artisans in Guatemala and beyond, while creating an experience that connects the wearer and the maker together.
Renate and Andrea have been immensely helpful to our operations in Guatemala, helping us establish relationships with suppliers, navigate the city, as well as being all around great amigas to us!
