Vino de Zunil: Textile Empowerment Connection

Hey Teysha community! We have been working with an amazing bunch of ladies in the beautiful valley and town of Zunil. They are part of an incredible cooperative that helps provide school supplies, threads and financial support to hundreds of women in their town to take care of their children, their farms, and, of course, continue their incredible textile art forms. They've come up with an incredible textile! 

What better symbol than a grape to celebrate diversity, connection and growth. Like the vine that reaches for the sun and through it's growth gives birth to flowers for the bees, then fruit for the world and then often wine for friends and lovers, with these special creations you will be spreading color and joy along your journey. In gratitude to nature and the people of Zunil, we're launching this shoe and committing 10% of proceeds to support sustainable agriculture projects in partnership with the cooperative, with a focus on childhood nutrition and environmental health. 

 

  • Handwoven textile exterior, made with love in Guatemala
  • Comfortable, padded insole with arch support
  • Fully lined in soft, breathable leather
  • Optional leather heel cap
  • Stacked leather heel with non-slip rubber heel cap
  • Pure leather sole, may be slick at first and will scuff and create traction after wearing

Our smoking slippers fit true to size. It is best if they are a little bit snug at first, as the soft leather interior will stretch a little bit to fit like a glove. If you have any questions about sizing, please email us at village@teysha.is
