Shoppe Object Stripes ~ July 2022

(Feature) There’s no design more summery, more versatile, more fun than stripes. Like a beach umbrella or a sailor’s boatneck, the colorful pattern keeps things cool and classic.

BHG was extremely thoughtful in selecting & learning about the featured brands which means a lot to us since for ixöq, success is as much about the story as the products.

We are thrilled to be a part of the KonMari brand, that as of early 2022 began carrying ixöq storage baskets in both indigo & chocolate (which they call earth). This is a really special collaboration as I have been inspired by Marie Kondo's organization & thoughtfulness as she creates a tidy world. We were especially thrilled when she included our basket in her list of 5 top home organizing products. Check out the article & the beautiful descriptions of our baskets on the KonMari site & share our joy!

I was extremely honored to be featured in VoyageBaltimore's Inspiring Stories series & to have the opportunity to introduce people to ixöq & talk a bit about our origin.

@voyagebaltimore recently posted: 'Our daily decisions impact the kind [of] world we live in; if we want a world where small businesses are growing and artists and creatives are thriving then we should support them with our time, money and attention. We're proud to highlight inspiring creatives and entrepreneurs each week in our Inspiring Stories series.'


This focus on small businesses & creators is so appreciated & helps those featured reach a broader audience & helps everyone discover creative local artists & entrepreneurs.

Thank you VoyageBaltimore for helping us share our work. Support for ixöq as a small local business means support for women artisans in Guatemala.
