TEYSHA TOUR: HEADING OUT

The last day at Bonnaroo was bittersweet. Bonnaroo feels like it’s own little world, full of merchants and musicians and dancers and artists, all open to learning about each other. Since many of the musicians were finished performing for the weekend, they had the chance to go to visit the vendor area. We loved how passionate about all sorts of … Continue reading →

Luz y Fortaleza

Teysha + Luz y Fortaleza We have been searching for an ally in Panama, someone who shares our vision, desire to empower, and love for traditional art. Several months ago, we were introduced to Michael, Rodelick, Sue, and Augustin of Fundacion Luz y Fortaleza Indigena (Indigenous light and Strength). From the moment we first spoke, we could feel very strongly that we had met our partners, the people who shared our dream of holistic prosperity, and who wanted to make it happen. Last week, we had the honor of meeting the Foundation in Panama. We journeyed together to the island of Ustupu, the most populated island in Kuna Yala and the home of Sue and Agustin, and Rodelick.

Teysha - A year of impact and keepin' it weird.

So it's been about a year in the making of Teysha. I don't know how that happened so quickly, but I guess it's true what they say... Time is BS.

And yes! I'm finally blogging! To be honest, we...

Guate Boots- job creation, craft preservation, community empowerment

So excited to introduce to you, GUATE BOOTS! Job creation, craft preservation, community empowerment   Our first week back in Guatemala has been a whirlwind of creation and excitement. We have been rocking and rolling gathering groups of artisans and boot makers to create the world's coolest boots. Job creation: The making of ONE pair of boots helps supplement the daily wage for at least 10 different artisans here. It truly is a community effort where everyone shares the work in order to create a pair of boots. In most cases, each of the ten artisans are working on several pairs of boots which further increases their day's wages. Craft preservation: Continuing Teysha's model of bringing together different groups of...
