Shop In Person

Our recent run of pop-up markets was truly unforgettable, in part because it rained A LOT 🌧️ 🙂, but mainly because we got to connect with some of you in person. Thanks to all the wonderful people we met and the incredible support from our community. We are grateful for every interaction and look forward to seeing you at our remaining spring & summer markets.

Our next market of the season is this upcoming weekend, June 1&2nd on Bethesda Ave (part of UrbnMarket's Spring Market series). Come check it out! We're back where we had some of our very first markets 6 years ago & are alongside an array of fabulous vendors. And the forecast is for ☀️!

We also have two additional summer markets that were rescheduled from spring rain-outs, so mark your calendars for those as well!

If you can't make it, shopping online is ALWAYS an option but nothing beats shopping in person.

Guatemala Trip Excitement!

We just returned from our latest trip to Guatemala! ixöq's journey is all about connecting with our talented artisans and exploring new opportunities. We recognize the value of in-person time & we try and get down there 2-3 times a year. This trip was special and we packed a LOT in! We were able to meet with the artisans who weave our products, visit the coordinator for the group that works on linings & tassels, meet with the director of the operation that does our shipping and spend lots of time brainstorming on how to ship more cost effectively, work on an exclusive design that we're launching with one of our favorite partners later this summer, & just run around & take it all in. I can't wait to share more details with you. Stay tuned for sneak peeks and exclusive updates from our travels. We'll share a lot more in the June newsletter.

Enjoy Summer!

Whether you're heading to the beach or exploring new destinations, our handwoven cestas are not just beautiful; they’re incredibly practical, making them the perfect bag for all your summer adventures.
