Through our Signature Collection, we are able to work with artisan-crafted material and companies who have an incredible mission. We welcome a new collaboration with a brand dedicated to creating sustainable fair trade jobs in Guatemala to promote traditional craftsmanship and slow fashion. With Mikoleon, we bring you two beautiful designs woven by artisan weavers within fair trade and crafted into Signature Carriers and Hip Pouches. In the near future, we will also bring you Signature Artisan Carriers made with vintage fabric sourced by Mikoleon. We’re not only happy to showcase their incredible work through our Baby Tula x Mikoleon collection but to collaborate on their sustainable and fair trade efforts.
Mikoleon is a robust creator of apparel and footwear that is hand-crafted, artisanal, eco-cool, up-cycled, 100% cotton, chemical and dye-free, fair trade, reduces CO2, and sustainable! Mikoleon is driven by their love for naturally made things which they want to pass onto our children.The material they have created for our collaboration is limited edition, hand-loomed cotton woven in the highlands of Guatemala by Mayan master weavers using century-old techniques. This natural cotton is ultra-soft and chemical-free. For our first two designs with Mikoleon, we selected classic patterns in rich, interesting colors to create something distinct yet wearable on your daily adventures. Laguna Ikat features jewel tones of fuschia, yellow, purple, and turquoise. And Autumn Windowpane is in a golden mustard tone. In later Signature Releases, we plan to also have Artisan Carriers created from vintage fabric sourced by Mikoleon.
Laguna Ikat Signature Carriers and Hip Pouch
In addition to the opportunity to support the Guatemalan weaving community with the Baby Tula x Mikoleon designs, we are delighted to provide additional support through a donation to Obras Sociales del Hermano Pedro. Mikoleon has been donating to Obras Sociales del Hermano Pedro for over 6 years which mostly supports babies needing time in the NICU while waiting to return home with their families. We will be donating a portion of the proceeds for every carrier or hip pouch sold within the Baby Tula x Mikoleon collection.
