We are so happy to introduce you to the Kolt Handmade family. Our artisans are the heart and soul behind everything we do. So, we thought it’s about time that you get to know the people who make Kolt what it is!
Just by our name alone, you know that each Kolt creation is made by hand. This at the foundation of who we are as a company. Still, through our handmade process, each Kolt item is so much more than a beautiful addition to your home or wardrobe. Kolt is a way to provide consistent and reliable work to artisans in Guatemala, and thus, a means of social and economic advancement.
Currently, our Artisan team consists of 3 amazing women: Leyby, Roxana, and Cindy.
Leyby has been with Kolt since the very beginning. Just three years ago, Leyby and I knew virtually nothing about working with leather but we were determined to learn! We spent countless hours trying new techniques and working to turn my designs into a reality. It’s been an incredible journey from then until now, and I am so proud of how far we’ve come together.
I’ve known Roxana for a while but she just started working with Kolt 3 months ago. This job provides her an additional opportunity to provide for herself and her son. She loves that there is always a new challenge and opportunity to learn.
Cindy joined Kolt just a few months ago. What she likes most about working with Kolt is that with each new project she is able to learn something new and improve her existing skills!
If there’s one thing I’m certain of, it’s that working with Leyby, Roxana, and Cindy is such an immense blessing. Their passion for learning and creating new things is an invaluable asset.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed learning a bit more about the women behind Kolt Handmade!
