I must say I was a little hesitant when I saw the Pantone Color of the year is Peach Fuzz but the more I looked at some of our designs, and the more I explored all of the fun combinations that work with peach, the more excited I got. So I decided to lean in. Below shows the direction we're going for spring & summer with lots of peach, pinks & melon but also maintaining teal, mint & blues a bit as an anchor and complement to the other colors. And of course we'll always have some standard neutrals.

mood board for spring 2024

I'm keeping some of our more popular designs - like the Cesta tote ~ ex-large ~ gradient stripe (WSP $62) but switching up some of the color combos but also adopting a rainbow similar to the Pantone combination that incorporates peach fuzz. We're also doing more to promote our storage containers which gained a lot of popularity in 2023.

These new & existing products will be available & on display at Shoppe Object (Feb 4-6) & as soon as we receive the prototypes we'll add them to our catalogs. 


Please note that the collections highlighted above are merely a selection of what's available & some styles/colorways we recommend. All of our orders are single-batch made to order so you can customize colors & designs to create the perfect combination for your stores. 


2024 Price Increases

We are constantly looking at our costs of production, including materials, freight & maintaining a fair living wage for the artisans. All of these factors, plus an examination of market rates for comparable items, help us set our prices. We've been surprised to see how much some groups charge for similar items & remain determined to price things fairly. We also feel it's important that the prices reflect the handmade nature of the product & not be undervalued. We haven't raised our prices since 2022 and it's time. We appreciate your understanding and assure you the decision to increase was not made without our retail partners in mind. 

The increases are small, ranging from 0-8% for all products except for the lined cesta totes. In the past we have sold linings below cost to wholesale customers because we didn't feel that the MSRP difference between a lined tote and an unlined tote warranted a 2x increase of the cost of the lining. But with a recent increase in what we pay for linings we've decided to sell them at cost to wholesale clients & you can set your retail prices accordingly. For example, the unlined version of medium cesta tote wholesales for $46 & the lined version wholesales for $58 (based on $12 cost of the lining). We have set our retail price for a lined medium cesta tote at $108, basically cutting the profit we receive for the lining but pricing at what works for our retail market.

We appreciate your valuing ixöq products & understanding the decisions behind these increases. These prices are guaranteed for current wholesale customers for all of 2024.


 Wholesale Purchase Details 

We are thrilled that you are interested in placing a wholesale order & excited to work together to create the best collection for your store. For us B2B is equally as important as D2C since it's the best way for ixöq to balance out orders & production & provide a steady and sustainable work flow and income stream for our partner artisans.

We are excited to forge sustainable relationships with retailers who share our mission to create practical, unique, fair trade products that honor the traditions and craft of women artisans of Guatemala. And we can't wait for you to introduce ixöq to your buyers.


ixoq booth display from Shoppe Object Feb 2024

Our ixöq cesta totes & boxi line of home storage containers are our two custom lines and include the products we make available to retailers. All of the products in these collections are designed by ixöq & handwoven by our partner artisans in Guatemala using cord made from locally sourced recycled plastic. The lined products are lined using up-cycled fabric, traditionally used for women’s skirts. We design the products with an eye on current trends and colors but with respect for traditional customs and design.

How to purchase wholesale (there are three (four!) options)

* Option one: place an order directly with us.

Download the catalog. Scroll through it. Review the color options, mark some favorites and send us an email (info@ixoqus.com) with your order/ideas OR schedule a call with us to help create your order. This is easy peasy. I'll write the order for your review & invoice you at the time of shipping through Quickbooks. You can also submit a draft order using our WHOLESALE ORDER FORM & sending it via email.

Please note, we try and keep our catalog updated on a seasonal basis but are always introducing new products & designs so if you've seen something along the way that you'd like that you do not see in the catalog please inquire directly about it's availability. WE ARE CURRENTLY CREATING A NEW CATALOG FOR 2024 BUT THE EXISTING CATALOG REFLECTS THE NEW PRICING.

* Option two:  shop through FAIRE DIRECT 

We offer online wholesale ordering on Faire where you can benefit from their Net60 terms & discounted shipping. Faire offers $100 off and one year of free shipping to retailers new to Faire. If you're a current Faire member you will get the same benefits you always enjoy but we ask that you please use our Faire Direct link & do not just search for us in the system. 


Option three:  shop through ShoppeOnline

If you are a buyer through Shoppe Object & have a ShoppeOnline account you can visit our virtual booth & purchase there. If you have a credit card on file in the system we will charge you the invoiced amount due plus shipping & handling at time of shipment. If you do not have a card on file we will bill you directly through Quickbooks as with a direct order.

Option four:  Small order from available inventory (@ 60% retail price)

If you’d like a quicker turn-around and are interested in shopping from our current inventory please use our retail channel to see what's available or email us with an idea of the items you are interested in. We will get back to you with availability and can ship within 7-10 days! (please note that because we produce in small batches we normally do not have more than 2 of any in-stock design/color.) Our standard wholesale prices are 50% of retail. With 'available inventory' orders the cost is 60% of retail since we are pulling from our retail stock. 

Customization & customer service

No matter which option you use, we will work directly with you on any customization and to create the perfect collection for your store. This allows you select the sizes, designs and colors of your choice.

Our standard lead time is 5-7 weeks but we take orders up to 6 months in advance. This helps us better coordinate a production schedule that makes sense for us & the artisans. We ask for a 50% deposit for any order with a delivery date more than three months out. 

Our MOQ is $300 (approximately 4 skus) & 2 items per sku. You can learn more details on our terms page

We look forward to working with you and appreciate your interest in carrying ixöq products and in supporting women artisans of Guatemala!

If you have questions or need help please reach out to Katie (co-founder, director, creative)  at info@ixoqus.com  or 301.785.0421. I am happy to help with selections & navigating the ordering process.
