Kushty locks is a small fair trade and ethical company, selling clothing and accessories made from personally sourced Guatemalan material. All of the Kushty locks items are made from recycled materials, hand crafted and embroidered by local families in Guatemala. All the fabric is unique, ethically sourced and were usually used as wall hangings or traditional mayan clothing. Each year i travel to Guatemala and looks out for unique fabrics from a second hand market. I then work very closely with three different families of tailors to create my ‘kushty’ designs. The tradition of fabric is deeply rooted in Guatemalan history. Each town in Guatemala has a completely different style of fabric which represents their people, and all of the fabric is either woven on a loom or hand embroidered. The Mayan artisans are inspired by nature and spirituality, which makes every piece of clothing have its own story. By working with these incredible artisans i have not only been able to financially support them but i have built strong relationships and exchanged many skills. I take great pride in producing high quality unique clothing and accessories which will last you a life time.
