Vino de Zunil: Textile Empowerment ConnectionTeysha
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.
