Exciting news from Guatemala!

Read on for exciting updates from Teysha Co-Founder Sophie, and Director of Production, Hanna. It’s hard to believe the first Teysha boots were made in Guatemala in February 2013. Since that first pair of boots, our team has laid the foundation for an exciting new change taking place today.  Coming from a background of international development, the goal of working in Guatemala was always to provide the tools, training, and inspiration for the communities to continue on stronger and with more opportunities. Rather than a “top-down” approach or telling people how they should do things, we learned together about what worked and didn’t, with the goal of having local ownership of the ideas and plans.  (one of our very first...

Teysha Intern Field Report: Philip S.

Guest post by our summer intern, Philip Sansone, a Fusion Academy high-school student from Austin, Texas. Philip spent time in Guatemala experiencing the culture and craft of shoemaking and all of the history and fun that Guatemala has to offer!  I’ll be honest, I wasn't that excited to be leaving my house and computer for a week.

Whole Earth Provision Co + Teysha

We are so thrilled to announce our newest stockist, Whole Earth Provision Co! We are working with Whole Earth at their locations in Houston (Post Oak and Shepherd), San Antonio (Quarry Market), and Austin (Westgate).  Growing up, I used to walk down to the Whole Earth store at 12th and Lamar and peruse their selection of Patagonia, North Face, and more as I geared up for my travels.
