The Root Collective


At The Root Collective, we believe that partnership is better than helping. We work directly with artisans in Guatemala to empower their businesses to create economic opportunities for marginalized communities in Guatemala. From the rural highlands of the country, to an urban slum where gang violence pervades, we utilize specialized skill sets to create handwoven fabric and handcrafted shoes. We also donate a portion of each sale to Lemonade International, a nonprofit that works solely in the slum of La Limonada where our shoes are made.

How We Give Back:
  • Poverty/Homelessness
  • Human Trafficking
  • Local/International Artisan Support
