úkata+ is my personal project which aims to help sustain Mexican craftspeople and Mexican Crafts, by incorporating craft into mainstream fashion product.
More on úkata+ Huaraches soon.
I had originally included other footwear designs besides Huaraches which incorporated other Mexican crafts such as hand woven textiles, but working with artisans from many parts of such a big country was challenging.
It was also challenging to get complicated factory development done pro bono, remotely and without the potential volume orders of a big brand to back me.
But I expect pick this project up again with new designs soon.
